GAMySQLDriver#execute: raises exception when int field is NULL


I report this problem at the issue tracker,, but I realized there are only 3 issues reported there that are open over the last year, so I wasn't sure it was active. So I'm reposting here, thinking maybe this is the correct place (?).

Here's the problem statement. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a bug?

Using Pharo 5.0 and latest DBXTalk/Garage as of 6/1/2016.
Running on Windows 10 and connecting to a MySQL database on a Linux server.

Setup the following table:

mysql> select * from test_table;
| id | foo  |
|  1 |    1 |
|  2 | NULL |
mysql> describe test_table;
| Field | Type    | Null | Key | Default | Extra          |
| id    | int(11) | NO   | PRI | NULL    | auto_increment |
| foo   | int(11) | YES  |     | NULL    |                |
2 rows in set (0.01 sec)

Execute the following:

c := GADriver fromConnectionString: 'MySQL://'.
c connect.
q := c execute: 'select * from test_table'.

This results in the following error from GAMysqlDriver down in the NumberParser:

Reading a number failed: a digit between 0 and 9 expected

If the query is modified to avoid the NULL entries, then it works with no error:

q := c execute: 'select * from test_table where not (foo is null)'.

So it appears that the driver does not expect a NULL value for an integer.
