I've noticed another strange behaviour with the Acquisition module in
Zope 2.9 that might give us some clues as to why refreshing doesn't

Imagine some code that looks like this::

from Acquisition import aq_parent

class MyProduct(Folder):
    def index_html(self):
        print type(aq_parent) is None
        return "Hello World!"

The first time I run this, it prints "False" to stdout because
ac_parent is of course a function.
BUT, if I refresh the product (no change made to the source) and run
this index_html() again it instead prints "True" because ac_parent has
become None.
Isn't that odd?

Again, this is easily reproducable with

Any idea anyone?
