Prevent failure when RowExpr or XmlExpr is parse-analyzed twice.

transformExpr() is required to cope with already-transformed expression
trees, for various ugly-but-not-quite-worth-cleaning-up reasons. However,
some of its newer subroutines hadn't gotten the memo. This accounts for
bug #7763 from Norbert Buchmuller: transformRowExpr() was overwriting the
previously determined type of a RowExpr during CREATE TABLE LIKE INCLUDING
INDEXES. Additional investigation showed that transformXmlExpr had the
same kind of problem, but all the other cases seem to be safe.
