      Bug #55565: debug assertion when ordering by expressions with user 
      variable assignments
      
      The assert() that is firing is checking if expressions that can't be
      null return a NULL when evaluated.
      MAKEDATE() function can return NULL if the second argument is 
      less then or equal to 0. Thus its nullability depends not only on 
      the nullability of its arguments but also on their values.
      Fixed by (overoptimistically) setting MAKEDATE() to be nullable 
      despite the nullability of its arguments.
      Test added.
      Had to update one test result to reflect the metadata change.

Noted in 5.1.51, 5.5.6 changelogs.

ORDER BY clauses that included user variable expressions could cause
a debug assertion to be raised. 

Setting report to Need Merge pending push to 5.6.x.
