In this case the user had a geometry column specified in the postgis
metadata table that did not actually exist in the feature table.  This
is probably fairly low-priority, but it should throw an exception when
it runs into this kind of problem, rather than just crashing out.

What, you expect me to remember? ;)

I believe that when trying to create a layer based on a PostGIS table
with no primary key, the attributes were not available in Studio at
all... they could not be selected for display, etc.  This may be a
MapGuide limitation rather than a PostGIS limitation though?
