RIPE Database Query Output Issue

Users of the RIPE Database may have received an error message for some queries and query results due to a software issue. This situation only occurred when a query flag option was used that caused incomplete objects to be returned, such as using the query flag "-K", which only returns the primary key of objects. An extra check was validating the syntax of objects returned in response to a query. This check failed to take into account valid, incomplete objects and did not include these in a count of objects returned. In some cases, this count remained zero and the "%ERROR:101: no entries found" message was displayed.

This check has now been fixed and test cases added to cover this situation. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
