yes, that's the first thing one does: doubt your own code.

the object in question is created once, and there is no code to delete 
it since in that application, it is of no use.
The only thing that happens is that we add/moify/delete other object to
that rootnode.

that was exactly the question I was asking in the first place :
tools to browse the ZODB, to see where it broke.

Ok, I figured that out by now as well. the read conflict error has 
indeed nothing to do with our problem. sorry 'bout that...

But we found something else:

I included a script below that produces a stripped down analogy
of our problem. (no zope needed, just ZODB, and you might wanna modify 
the first line to get it working)

The script produces the following output:

C:\zope\devel>bin\python.exe \temp\test.py
<Foo instance at 008DCAC8> 0
<Foo instance at 008E1280> 0
Traceback (most recent call last):

   File "\temp\test.py", line 30, in _p_resolveConflict
     print savedState['data'].getHello()
AttributeError: PersistentReference instance has no attribute 'getHello'

The question is: is intended ZODB behaviour or not, and is there a work 
around ?

have fun,

import sys
sys.path.insert(0, '%s/lib/python' % swhome)
sys.path.insert(1, '%s/bin/lib' % swhome)

import ZODB
from Persistence import Persistent

class Dummy(Persistent):
    def __init__(self):
        self.hello = "Hello there..."
    def getHello(self):
        return self.hello

class Foo(Persistent):

    def __init__(self):
        self.data = Dummy()
        self.count = 0

    def incCounter(self):
        self.count += 1

    def getCount(self):
        return self.count

    def _p_resolveConflict(self, oldState, savedState, newState):
        print savedState['data'].getHello()
        print newState['data'].getHello()
        print oldState['data'].getHello()
        diffsaved = savedState['count'] - oldState['count']
        diffnew = newState['count'] - oldState['count']
        newState['count'] = oldState['count'] + diffsaved + diffnew
        return newState

from ZODB import FileStorage, DB

storage = FileStorage.FileStorage('/temp/test.fs')
db = DB( storage )

# Init van test object
conn = db.open()

root = conn.root()
root['foo'] = Foo()

conn1 = db.open()
root1 = conn1.root()
foo1 = root1['foo']

conn2 = db.open()
root2 = conn2.root()
foo2 = root2['foo']

print foo1, foo1.getCount()
print foo2, foo2.getCount()



print foo1, foo1.getCount()
print foo2, foo2.getCount()
