When executing the falcon_ddl RQG test, Falcon crashed as follows:

Note that in frame #4, this=0xeeeeeeee .

This crash was probably not seen before because the falcon_ddl previously did not contain auto_increment. auto_increment was added because code coverage showed that Falcon sequences, that, is auto_increment is not being exercised by the RQG.

The crash is due to SHOW TABLE STATUS, however very likely Falcon's internal structures were corrupted from some other DDL statement.

How to repeat:

      Bug#42478 : Falcon crash in Database::updateSequence
      The problem: when a Falcon table with autoincrement column is created 
      ,Falcon will assign a sequence to table name /schema name combination.
      and use it to generate autoincrement values. When table is renamed,
      sequence is modified (table name changed). However, schema name changes
      are not taken into account when renaming.
      This is be a problem, because
      a) Falcon data dictionary (sequences table) is now corrupt.
      b) hash table sequences will have duplicate entries if there is
      a table with the same name and different schema. drop table may
      drop a wrong sequence.
      The fix is to take schema name into account when renaming a sequence.
