The problem is that a doomed transaction prevents "joining".

This means that any operation that causes a join during error
handling will fail. Examples are: accessing a session, accessing
a relational database.

The bug is in the ZODB ("transaction") code.
A doomed transaction should not prevent joining.

The only justification for the prevention is that "transaction"
knows that any modification (potential cause of the join) will
not be able to be committed (thus, "transaction" can indicate a problem
*HOWEVER*, transactions can be joined for other purposes as modifications
(example relational database access) and sometimes modifications should
be possible even then they cannot be (and are not expected to be) committed
(example error handling).

Thus, please let us fix "transaction".
