      Description

      When joining two datasets where one column in each dataset is sourced from the same input dataset, the join successfully runs, but does not select the correct columns, leading to incorrect output.

      Repro using pyspark:

      sc.version
      import pyspark.sql.functions as F
      d = [{'key': 'a', 'sales': 1, 'units' : 2}, {'key': 'a', 'sales': 2, 'units' : 4}, {'key': 'b', 'sales': 5, 'units' : 10}, {'key': 'c', 'sales': 1, 'units' : 2}, {'key': 'd', 'sales': 3, 'units' : 6}]
      input_df = spark.createDataFrame(d)
      df1 = input_df.groupBy("key").agg(F.sum('sales').alias('sales'))
      df2 = input_df.groupBy("key").agg(F.sum('units').alias('units'))
      df1 = df1.filter(F.col("key") != F.lit("c"))
      df2 = df2.filter(F.col("key") != F.lit("d"))
      ret = df1.join(df2, df1.key == df2.key, "full").select(
      df1["key"].alias("df1_key"),
      df2["key"].alias("df2_key"),
      df1["sales"],
      df2["units"],
      F.coalesce(df1["key"], df2["key"]).alias("key"))
      ret.show()
      ret.explain()

      output for 2.4.4:

      u'2.4.4'

      >>> input_df = spark.createDataFrame(d)
      >>> df1 = input_df.groupBy("key").agg(F.sum('sales').alias('sales'))
      >>> df2 = input_df.groupBy("key").agg(F.sum('units').alias('units'))

      key#0 is the reference used for both alias operations and both sides of the coalesce, despite the query plan projecting key#24 for the right side of the join.
      Concretely, I believe the output of the join should be this:

      +-------+-------+-----+-----+----+
      |df1_key|df2_key|sales|units| key|
      +-------+-------+-----+-----+----+
      |      d|   null|    3| null|   d|
      |   null|      c| null|    2|   c|
      |      b|      b|    5|   10|   b|
      |      a|      a|    3|    6|   a|
