The id for the image object is generated by the following code:

So there should not be any collision of ids.

You should verify this. I doubt that you are right, as both the
scheduling as well as the clock granularity are discrete (and rather

I suggest you use either the mechanism of

 *  the "BrowserIdManager"::it combines a time with a random number

 *  the "ZCatalog": it chooses per thread a random number and
    then assignes sequentially, until a conflict happens.
    Then it restarts (choosing a random number...)

I am still investing, and have found errors like:

in the event.log.

Apparently, you have more than a single type of error...

Are you the person that used "try: ... except: ..."?

  The non-deterministic inconsistencies caused by such constructs
  can look like what you decribe above...

I was originally using the try/except to trap the conflict error, but as a result of being educated as to the futility of that approach I have since removed the try/except.

I have also included a random 3 digit suffix in the id generation routine to address the issue of muliple processes potentially generating the same id. However, the conflict errors remain, so I am back to investigating...

Thanks for the help,
