As trivial as? This is a bit of an annoying way to present a software
bug. Anyway, thank you very much for letting us know about this!

?feed=rss2&p=-1 results in db error, showing sql query (table prefixes)

The whole WordPress community really appreciate your help in
uncovering these issues. Are there other issues you know about that
you can share at this time?
(Assuming you haven't emailed security at wordpress.org and are giving
them an opportunity to fix the issue prior to public disclosure.)

Thanks again,
