You are misinterpreting the output. The result is the number of rows
that would have been returned by a FETCH with the same parameters.
FETCH 0 means "re-fetch current row" (don't blame us, this is per SQL
spec), and so it will return 1 row unless you are currently positioned
off the end of the result. Hence, MOVE 0 returns either 0 or 1
depending on whether you are currently on a row.
It looks like the MOVE documentation is a bit poorly worded; I'll do
something about that.
