I migrated from Havana to Icehouse in early August and did not see
this issue. I did have trouble with some of my tables not being in
UTF8 but pretty sure that was it.  My database has been rolling
forward since Essex an I don't have the exact notes but I know on
previous updates I've hit some interesting corner cases because of
previous migrations not being 100% the same as a fresh install of the
last release.  Perhaps not the most useful data point, but that was my

I think I still have a copy of my Havana DB on line so I could
"describe <table>;" before and after if there's anything you are
