I'll backport the fixes for these issues:

> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5239 yes? kahatlen
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5274 yes kahatlen
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5278 yes kahatlen

These ones would be best not to backport (marked with

> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5068 yes kahatlen

These are just minor improvements that should be harmless to backport,
but I don't see that backporting them is worth the effort, so I won't do
it myself:

> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5200 yes kahatlen
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5246 yes? kahatlen
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4670 yes kahatlen
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5145 yes kahatlen
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5267 yes kahatlen
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5275 yes kahatlen
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5217 yes kahatlen

The commit below just adds a disabled test case to show the bug (the bug
is not fixed, and the issue is still open). Not worthwhile backporting.
If the issue is fixed, we can backport all commits then.

The next two commits are followups to issues others have been working
on. If the main patches for the issues are backported, these should be
backported too. But the changes in these issues are so small that I
wouldn't bother backporting them (DERBY-5260 just removes an unused
parameter, and the net effect of the patches for DERBY-3913 is a slight
reordering of the words in a message).
