Possible bug in Geography ST_Covers

Reported by: robe Owned by: pramsey

I would expect the answer to my UTM to agree with Geography answer. Also the platte-care answer is woo really screwed. That I think is a bug in the casting or somethng I don't understand about the casting which I'll put in as a separate ticket.

SELECT ST_AsText(pt.the_geog) As wkt_pt, ST_Covers(poly.the_geog, pt.the_geog) As geog,
		ST_Transform(CAST(poly.the_geog As geometry),32611), 
		ST_Transform(CAST(pt.the_geog As geometry),32611)) As utm,
		CAST(poly.the_geog As geometry), 
		CAST(pt.the_geog As geometry)
	) As pca
FROM (SELECT ST_GeographyFromText('SRID=4326;POLYGON((-119.5434 34.9438,-119.5437 34.9445,-119.5452 34.9442,-119.5434 34.9438))') As the_geog) 
	As poly
		( ST_GeographyFromText('SRID=4326;POINT(-119.5434 34.9438)') ) ,
		( ST_GeographyFromText('SRID=4326;POINT(-119.5452 34.9442)') ) ,
		( ST_GeographyFromText('SRID=4326;POINT(-119.5434 34.9438)') ),
		( ST_GeographyFromText('SRID=4326;POINT(-119.5438 34.9443)')  )
	As pt(the_geog);

I'm expecting all these to yield an answer of true. Instead I get

          wkt_pt          | geog | utm | pca
 POINT(-119.5434 34.9438) | t    | t   | f
 POINT(-119.5452 34.9442) | f    | t   | f
 POINT(-119.5434 34.9438) | t    | t   | f
 POINT(-119.5438 34.9443) | t    | t   | f

The pca answer is particularly troubling which I think is a separate issue.

I get the right (?) answer

          wkt_pt          | geog | utm | pca 
 POINT(-119.5434 34.9438) | t    | t   | t
 POINT(-119.5452 34.9442) | t    | t   | t
 POINT(-119.5434 34.9438) | t    | t   | t
 POINT(-119.5438 34.9443) | t    | t   | t
(4 rows)

as of r4640. Could be the precision issues that manifest in your cunit failures. Those remain on my list (though a ticket wouldn't hurt).

That is the answer I would expect. Mine is still wrong even after r4640. I thought it was maybe a bbox issue again but && returns true on all accounts.

ST_Distance also returns 0 on all accounts. Anyrate I'll put in another ticket for Cunit issue once I've cataloged the various ways its failing on different boxes.

I'm still getting the right answer. Has anything changed on your end?
