 I was looking into bug 1615 and would like to have your comments on it. 
 What we end up in this case is that a tile layer is using functions of 
a flat shape file.  From what I can see, a possible source of problem in 
this case would be that function msInitializeVirtualTable  does not 
include some logic that is included for example in msLayerOpen :

 if(layer->features && layer->connectiontype != MS_GRATICULE )
    layer->connectiontype = MS_INLINE;

  if(layer->tileindex && layer->connectiontype == MS_SHAPEFILE)
    layer->connectiontype = MS_TILED_SHAPEFILE;

  if(layer->type == MS_LAYER_RASTER )
    layer->connectiontype = MS_RASTER;

 Do it make sense to have these in msInitializeVirtualTable  ?
