Sometimes looking at the object in question can provide some hints.  You
have the OID, start up zodbbrowser (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/zodbbrowser),
go to @@zodbbrowser?oid=0x7a5d and see if the data sheds some link.
Some things, e.g. annotations, stand out pretty clearly (and the default
adapter for IAttributeAnnotatable is one of the things that has
write-on-read semantics.)

Sadly, the ZODB doesn't track backreferences, so there only way to find
out for sure what points to your object is to do a full graph traversal.

Cheers!
