Hi Kathey, 

thanks for helping me through this.

Right, well it seems the tests are not that clever generally. As I
mention, using the 10.6 version of derbyTesting.jar saw more errors than
the 10.7 one (in spite of the default db not having been hard upgraded),
since the 10.7 version of derbyTesting is prepared to see
BOOLEAN in metadata.
