[odb-users] odb crashes when querying object with section

I'm having issues with
odb 2.5.0.a11
sqlite 3.13.0
vs2015 update 3
windows 10
both release and debug

Schema and code below.

Test case requires two runs.
On the first run sqlite database file is created and filled with a single
On the second run it tries to query that single row and crashes in
*result.begin() line, crash stack(note garbage in capacity argument value)
is similar to:
  KernelBase.dll!_RaiseException at 16() Unknown
> vcruntime140.dll!_CxxThrowException(void * pExceptionObject=0x008ff654,
const _s__ThrowInfo * pThrowInfo=0x0f73a2fc) Line 131 C++
  odb-2.5.dll!__scrt_throw_std_bad_alloc() Line 33 C++
  odb-2.5.dll!operator new(unsigned int size=0xcdcdcdcd) Line 19 C++
  odb-2.5.dll!odb::details::basic_buffer_base::capacity(unsigned int
c=0xcdcdcdcd, unsigned int data_size=0x00000000) Line 21 C++
  odbbugtest.exe!odb::sqlite::object_result_impl<Test>::load_image() Line
132 C++
  odbbugtest.exe!odb::sqlite::object_result_impl<Test>::load_id() Line 95
  odbbugtest.exe!odb::object_result_impl<Test>::load() Line 25 C++

My analysis:
- db->query<Test>() line runs object_statements<Test> construction which
leaves image_ field filled with garbage from heap. (Test case requires
"prepared" heap to be reproducible in release build)
- then object_result_impl<Test>::load_image() gets "truncated" result from
"statement_->load()" and goes to access::object_traits_impl< ::Test,
id_sqlite >::grow which tries to set sec1_value capacity to previously
uninitialized value(0xcdcdcdcd).

return 0;

auto &row = *result.begin(); // <--- crash here

//ASSERT(row.id == 12345)


return 0;
