Hi Phil,

Yup.. I realized it when I could *list* all the ids, but not delete 
them. ;-) I'm wondering if it might be better to change the 
implementation of getPersistentItemIDs to return a plain list? This 
would also help avoid permission errors that folks run in to when trying 
to use it in dtml. I realize that listifying takes time, but you 
probably wouldn't call it if you had a very large number of items in the 
rack (you'd maybe query a catalog or something else.. )
