Ok, I may have understood this completely backwards, but could you say
that the following is true: Previously the equality propagation
procedure assumed that an expression over ROW functions, e.g. ROW(...)
<op> ROW(...) wronfully assumed the operator to be '='?
If this is not the case, I need to shape up. :-)
If this is that case, I think that would be good to include this in the
cset comment since it's 1) on a higher level 2) It's much more likely
paul will not bug you to clarify it later :-)

Is there a non-obvious reason for the asserts? In my (limited)
understanding they only serve to ensure that item_equal is of the class
Item_equal (through our poor-man's RTTI.) But COND_EQUAL::current_level
is an instantiated template of List<Item_equal>, hence only Item_equal's
can go in it anyway. Am I missing something?

I think it would be more true to the coding standard if you did not wait
with 'return item_equal' until after the 'else'. The end result would be:
if ((item_equal= cond_equal.current_level.pop()))
Apart from that, it's a great fix!
