In this discussion from another list, Tres suggested that the bug might
be in zope.app.keyreference so I'm copying this to the development list.
The gist here is that the IPersistent, IObjectAddded event handler will
force objects to have connections and makes assumptions about what
connection it should get that might not be valid. Here's the thread:
