The following SQL returns no rows. It ought to return four rows: <blockquote><verbatim> CREATE TABLE t1(a INTEGER PRIMARY KEY,b); INSERT INTO t1(a,b) VALUES(1,11),(2,22),(3,33),(4,44); SELECT * FROM t1 WHERE (a,b)>(0,0); </verbatim></blockquote> Changing the comparison operator from > to >= gives the correct result. The correct result also results from < and <= operators assuming the values on the RHS are adjusted accordingly. The problem appears to have been in the code ever since row-values were introduced in version 3.15.0 on 2016-10-14. The problem was reported on the sqlite-users mailing list by an anonymous users.

Root cause was an incorrect table lookup when translating the TK_GT expression node operator from the parse tree into the OP_SeekGE opcode for the virtual machine. This was probably caused by insufficient caffeine. The problem should have been detected by subsequent assert() statement, except those assert()s were omitted.
