I'm running a binary snapshot from two days ago.  When I run a update with
aliases the SQL doesn't work.  The alias does work if I run just a select
statement however.  Is this suppose to be like this.  If not is it only
broken in the 7.5 WIN32 build?

When I try an update like the one below I get the error that follows.

update report_base s
set s.sql_base = 'select * from test_data where'
where s.report_base_id = 1;

ERROR:  syntax error at or near "s" at character 20

The SQL with the aliase taken out works fine as seen below.
update report_base
set sql_base = 'select * from test_data where'
where report_base_id = 1;

Query returned successfully: 1 rows affected, 282 ms execution time.
