When determining whether or not a partial index is usable, do not assume that the cursor number assigned to each table in the query is the same as its index in the FROM clause. Fix for ticket [98d973b8f5]. (check-in: fcebca16 user: dan tags: trunk)

The SELECT statement at the end of the following block of SQL outputs no rows, but it should output one row.

CREATE TABLE t1(a, b);
CREATE TABLE t2(c, d);
INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(1, 'xyz');
INSERT INTO t2 VALUES('abc', 'not xyz');
CREATE INDEX i2 ON t2(c) WHERE d='xyz'; 
SELECT * FROM (SELECT * FROM t1 WHERE a=1 AND b='xyz'), t2 WHERE c='abc';\

A correct result is obtained if the index created on the penultimate line is convert into a complete index or if the index is omitted entirely.

This bug appears to have been in the implementation of partial indexes from their introduction in SQLite version 3.8.0, 2013-08-26.
