Your select list looks fine, so I doubt there's a problem there. I wasn't
able to reproduce the problem under 3.1.1 on my system either. There's
very little that changed in the boolean parser between 3.1.1 & 3.1.2.
A bit of the error handling changed, to avoid repeated error messages,
but there was nothing in 3.1.1 to cause it to reject a syntactically
valid expression. Maybe there's a problem with the build of 3.1.1 on
your system, that's not showing up on other systems.
