I just thought of how this happens...  if you delete an object from the 
Rack, it's being removed from the virtual list of keys your loop is 
traversing.  So as you iterate from 0..n, and you delete  items from the 
rack, they are removed from the keys list too, the list shortens, and every 
other item in the list is skipped!  This is why you get half the list every 

The fix would probably be:

foo = getPersisentItemIDs()

while foo:

I should probably do this in ZPatterns too.  I'm working on upgrading it
