Does windshaft now depend on cartodb enabled databases ?

See original GitHub issue

I get this error upon sending a map config to Windshaft:

{"errors":["function cdb_querytablestext(unknown) does not exist"]}

Does this mean Windshaft now requires a cartodb-enabled database ? ( this wasn’t the case until “recently” )

Nevermind, I found I had the layerMetadata feature enabled in config. Seems to be fixed now.

So I cannot confirm the fix is effective as I still find this in the logs:

ERROR:  function cdb_querytablestext(unknown) does not exist at character 15

How can I further debug this ? (and I cannot reopen this myself). The MapConfig looks like this:

  "version": "1.5.0",
  "layers": [{"type": "mapnik",
      "options": {
       "cartocss": "#s { marker-width: 10; marker-fill: #a04057; }",
        "sql": "select * from liberia",
        "geom_column": "geom",
        "srid": 4326,
        "cartocss_version": "2.0.0",
        "interactivity": "instance"
