Well, they closed it as No Fix very quickly, a bit under two and a half days after it was raised. I thought they would at least change the BoL documentation to describe this behaviour (since one of the points in the DETAIL part of the Connect item was that the documentation didn't describe this undesirable behaviour) but no, they've done nothing about the documentation either. I've made a few sharp comments on Microsoft's handling of bugs and their misuse of the "backward compatability" excuse over the years, this is just another example. Why they think that having undocumented behaviours like this is OK is beyond me.
P.S. Thanks for the easy question !:hehe:😀!
