Hello... yet another shp2pgsql problem here !
(( problem 1 ))
>From a shapefile imported with shp2pgsql I get an extra EMPTY geometry.
This is the last INSERT from generated sql:
insert into "rfi2_14" values('174','0','0','0','0','0.000',
GeometryFromText('MULTILINESTRING ()',30001) );
It looks like a NULL entry, no dbf data, no geometry...
The postgis parser does not like 'MULTILINESTRING ()'
"couldn't parse geometry"
Shouldn't shp2pgsql check for these exceptions storing a NULL
geometry instead, and maybe printing a warning on stderr ?
I'm not considering also the possibility that this last record was not
in the shapefile at all.
(( problem 2 ))
>From a shapefile imported with shp2pgsql I get some MULTILINESTRING
geometries which has someting missed at the beginning of definition:
'MULTILINESTRING (,686443.612958726 150851.536125343 0 ))',
Getting this problem makes me think that probably problem 1 is also
just shp2pgsql related, might be a bogus multilinestring handling.
any hint on catching the bug ?
