      Description

      With the following table definition and query

      CREATE TABLE T (X VARCHAR(10) NOT NULL);
      INSERT INTO T VALUES 'true', 'false', 'unknown';
      SELECT CAST(X AS BOOLEAN) FROM T;

      the meta-data for the returned result will say that the column is not nullable, although it will contain a NULL value in the third row.
