Bug in Weight by Chi Squared Statistic

Whenever an exampleSet with a date data type is passed to "Weight by Chi Squared Statistic" operator, I get java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException. Since the operator can automatically deal with numeric attributes (by discretizing them) and similar operators like Information Gain Ratio or Gini can deal correctly date attributes, I am inclined to believe that this is a bug. The operator should be tested on other data types (like date_time and time) as well.

 

Provisional workaround: Convert the date to numeric with "Date to Numerical" operator.
