#1235: cast to different-srid typmod
 Reporter:  strk     |       Owner:  pramsey      
     Type:  defect   |      Status:  new          
 Priority:  medium   |   Milestone:  PostGIS 2.0.0
Component:  postgis  |     Version:  trunk        
 Keywords:           |  
 This brief session seems inconsistent to me:

 strk=# select st_srid(geom::geometry('multipolygon', 0)) from poly;
 (1 row)

 strk=# select st_srid(geom::geometry('multipolygon', 2)) from poly;
 ERROR:  Geometry SRID (4326) does not match column SRID (2)

 Basically the first cast attempt silently fails (the returned geometry has
 still the original srid, rather than the one I requested: 0).
