You are seeing the result of a (mis)feature of acquisition:  the
objects you are comparing are actually AcquisitionImplicitWrappers
around the real 'myObject';  because the two wrappers are different,
and because the underlying object doesn't define a custom '__cmp__()'
method, the two wrappers are compared for identity (which is bogus).

I recently fixed this in response to a Collector issue:

 http://classic.zope.org:8080/Collector/1650/view

You can get the patch from that page, or just wait for Zope 2.3
(RSN, I'm sure).
