Query with lots of nullable columns create stack overflow

See original GitHub issue

I found this while working with a very, very wide table with lots of nullable columns. The code gen work fine however when it runs you get a stack overflow in the getItem:

I have create a PR with a test that shows this error:

I have seen a similar problem when I ported some code over to dotnet core. I think the F# compiler does some function nesting which ticks over a magic stack allowance and throws the error. In my case it was expect computation expressions test which a restructured into a list.

Also, do you know the approximate column number limit for when this started to occur?

It only happens with nullable columns as I think the extra if statements create the stack overflow

Do you know if this was specific to nullable columns?

It seems a but random but it somewhere between 394 to 400 columns but I don’t think that number could be relied upon as it could be depend on how far the call is in the stack?

cmeerencommented, Apr 8, 2022 was reopened after I confirmed that it was in fact not fixed. However, there is little to do on my part except keep the workaround in place. So I don’t see any reason to reopen this issue.
