Code segment demonstrating problems with Mx0 * 0xN matrix products

Reading through the changelog, I was excited to see the line 'Enable Mx0 * 0xN matrix products' in version 3.2.3. I think there are still some issues however.

See the attached file. The output on my machine (compiled using clang) is:
Eigen version: 3.2.4

For x, y, and z I would expect a 6x1 matrix of zeros. However evaluating x = A * b results in a segfault and evaluating y = A * c results in an assertion error:
Assertion failed: (lhs.cols()>0 && "you are using a non initialized matrix"), function run, file /usr/local/include/eigen3/Eigen/src/Core/products/CoeffBasedProduct.h, line 428.

Confirmed, expect that with the latest 3.2 and devel branches you do not get segfaults but either assertions or compilation failures. This is thus more a feature request.

Wow, that's great. Thanks for the quick response!
