Do we really need a checkpoint there at all?  I can't recall right now
if there was a good reason why Vadim made it do that.  I have a feeling
that it might have had to do with an assumption that the recovery
environment was completely distinct from live environment; which is a
statement that's certainly not going to be true in a query-answering
