Thanks to all people involved, for reporting the bug, finding the fix and confirming the bug.syzygy wrote:The SF rewrite will only slow down the probing code with no benefit (I've already shown how to do the rewrite properly, but there is no interest).Jouni wrote:I see there has been syzygy rewriting lately. May be this can be fixed at the same time?
However, I have just fixed it here, because it is a bug to do anything with TBScore if the probe was not successful:

Even if this were fixed in SF, I make no guarantee that probing an incomplete set of tables does what you would like it to do.
I will open a PR and fix SF, possibly this week end.
