(This mail is out of topic... Probably only interesting to ZODB gurus.)

This reminds me of something suspicious in ZODB code.
I think there is a bug when creating ghosts (when loading class name).

When loading object *state*, the following dance happens
- if oid is in "pending invalidation" queue, loadBefore and return
- load
- if oid is in "pending invalidation" queue, loadBefore
  (in case some invalidation was not received, and this works because/as long
  as loads and invalidations occur on an ordered link, such as a single TCP
- return

But, when reading object's class when generating a ghost (Connection.get), 
there is a single "load", so if object class changed, the ghost will be of the 
wrong class.

I think this bug was originally noticed by Julien (so CC'ed).
