DERBY-880 was originally filed as a regression because the test was
passing and seemingly getting valid results with 10.1.  Running it with
10.2 caused this error and the test to fail miserably, so at first
glance looked like a serious regression.  Dan pointed out that the test
probably needs to be  changed to not retrieve the lob twice and then it
will be ok again, but of course it would be good to verify that sooner
rather than later.

I think it is ok to take it out of the regression test failure
category.  I'll go ahead and do so.
