      calling DatabaseMetaData.getColumns(null, "APP", "CUSTOMER", "%") returns no rows for a valid APP.CUSTOMER table
      in ibm142 and sun142 jvms, for databases created with territory based collation, fails in all 3 cases we test in the junit test.

      Since this is a system catalog query I am surprised the result is affected at all by collation, so there may be a derby bug
      in the metadata routines, or elsewhere. Mamta, could you comment if you believe this should work already - or if there
      is more work to do in this area.

      I will soon checkin a test case into the unit test that shows this. For now I will either comment out the
      entire test, or if I can figure out how to not run it on 142 I will do that.

      This issue was first reported as DERBY-2703 but it was reported as a subtask of DERBY-1478. But since it really is a bug, I am re-reporting it at the top level so it can be tracked as open bug.
