Re: Strange first partition behavior while pruning on table partitioned by date.

It's a bug/feature. NULL values go in the first partition; it is checking for that (whether it needs to or not).

The semi-workaround is to have an extra partition at the beginning. By doing this (and having it empty), queries will waste less time hitting that partition.
