Is there any way an object could be invalidated without there being a
non-current revision to read?
Sure (through a call to "ZODB.DB.DB.invalidate"), although usually
it is done only after the object changed.
OK. I'm still not clear on whether what you describe is a bug or simply
what might happen now?
We are using it to cause objects to be flushed from all
ZODB connection caches (because we know that their "_v_" might
contain an inconsistent state).
Fortunately, we did not yet met the "loadBefore" problem you have hit.
Oh, so it's just me who's lucky? ;-)
What are the possible causes of invalidation?
A change of the object or some explicit call for invalidation.
I don't think any explicit calls are involved here...
