#120: PostGIS ungracefully handles structural problems in a database

       Type:  defect            |      Status:  new    
   Priority:  major             |   Milestone:  3.3.0  
  Component:  PostGIS Provider  |     Version:  3.2.0  
   Severity:  3                 |    Keywords:         
External_id:                    |  
 Robert Bray reported he got error like this one, in the fdopostgis log
 ERROR:  LWGEOM_estimated_extent: permission denied for relation delme

 After some tests, he followed up with following post:

  ''Ah, I think I found the problem. The delme table has an entry in the
  geometry_columns table for a column named geometry, however that column
  does not actually exist in the delme table.
  So the problem appears to be a structural problem in the DB. The
  provider bombs quite ungracefully on this condition, which is something
  we might want to look at.''

 Summarizing, this kind of issues should be investigated and fixed, so an
 exception is thrown instead of a bomb.
