I met this strange behaviour and considered it a bug.
What I wanted to do: use a ZODB object to synchronize
caches across a set of ZEO clients.
The synchronization object is empty but it should get
a new serial to indicate to other ZEO clients that
they should flush their cache.

It would be better than the current behaviour...
But, why not go a step further and let it behave as one would
expect: let the ZODB write the object at the next "transaction.commit()"?
