Alas, that wasn't the end of it either.  I think I'm at the end now, and all
the tests are passing again (including new tests to provoke new problems I

A savepoint (of the data manager Connection flavor) remembers the TmpStore
index at the time the savepoint was made.  When a savepoint could be used
only once, the savepoint only needed to make sure it had a copy of the index
at the time the savepoint was _made_.  But when a savepoint can be reused,
even the TmpStore.reset() line

    self.index = index

was a source of subtle bugs (later mutations to `self.index` showed up in
`index` too, and `index` there is typically taken from a savepoint's "this
is what the world looked like when I was new" state -- mutating that was
harmless before because the rollback could never be used again, but became
disastrous when allowing re-use).
