Hi Bernhard, thanks for the quick reaction.

Yes. But I guess the problem is also reproduceable with mysql, the
problem is in the query generator not backend specific.

It would be nice if you could come up with examples of all the usual
queries involving AND, OR, NOT and send me
- The parameters to the filter function for a specific query
- Optionally the generated sql (I can infer this myself).

So this probable involves specifying some common queries via the web
interface and looking what the filter method in backends/
is called with. Unfortunately there is no logging for this, so you have
to either instrument filter or set a breakpoint there in the python
Accompanying the examples with the expression specified in the web
interface would be nice, so I won't have to reverse-engineer that :-)

The whole idea of all this is to come up with a test that covers
functionality people (your customers among them :-) rely on before

Hmm, such a patch without a proper test is just what I want to avoid at
this time :-) Once the behaviour is nailed down it should be easy to
come up with a proper patch. Note that I have other systems where this
misbehaves. I ideally would find out what goes wrong there and come up
with additional tests (which would fail at this time) and proceed from
there. I already have some analyses on what I *think* is wrong. But
first I have to find out what it does when it's right :-)
