This is now also happening for some images during normal operation, so
after any blob migration has been run and existing blob caches have been
cleared. What happens is that somehow the file contents for
0xblahblah.blob in the blob caches can differ between two zeo clients,
even when the image has not changed at all (only tried with images as it
is easier to spot than with other files).
I don't know a good way to reproduce this, so also hard to say if this
would work better on the most recent ZODB3.
Perhaps 'experimental' *is* the right word for blob support in ZODB3
