Right. In the problem database, did that object disappear, or did it's
contents disappear?

It's not clear that the ZODB is broke. You didn't see any evidense
of a broken ZODB. No invalid object ids. No invalid transaction or
record data. The data in the database is not what you expect.

Yes, it is. When doing conflict resolution, you only get to use the state of
the object involved in the conflict. You don't get to see the state of persistent
subobjects. All sub-object references are converted to persistent references. This
is so, during conflict resolution, you can compare the object references for

Were you implementing application-level conflict resolution (_p_resolveConflict)
for any of your applicaton objects?
