> When one performs a select distinct on a table generated by a subselect, there sometimes
are duplicates in the result. The following example shows the problem:
> ij> CREATE TABLE names (id INT PRIMARY KEY, name VARCHAR(10));
> 0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> INSERT INTO names (id, name) VALUES
>        (1, 'Anna'), (2, 'Ben'), (3, 'Carl'),
>        (4, 'Carl'), (5, 'Ben'), (6, 'Anna');
> 6 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij> SELECT DISTINCT(name) FROM (SELECT name, id FROM names) AS n;
> NAME      
> ----------
> Anna      
> Ben       
> Carl      
> Carl      
> Ben       
> Anna      
> Six names are returned, although only three names should have been returned.
> When the result is explicitly sorted (using ORDER BY) or the id column is removed from
the subselect, the query returns three names as expected:
> ij> SELECT DISTINCT(name) FROM (SELECT name, id FROM names) AS n ORDER BY name;
> NAME      
> ----------
> Anna      
> Ben       
> Carl      
> 3 rows selected
> ij> SELECT DISTINCT(name) FROM (SELECT name FROM names) AS n;
> NAME      
> ----------
> Anna      
> Ben       
> Carl      
> 3 rows selected
