Ah, there we go. So that was fixed after 3.4.0 was tagged, and Zope
2.8 branch still points to the 3.4.0 tag. Guess we need a new tag.

Good, I had came to the same result with test and all *wink*. Wish I
had looked at checkins before.

Humm... I don't see where the assumption would be except for a import
dependency. My fear is that TmpStore does basically what FileStorage
does but get way less attention and ends up bitrotting. This is not
the first time I've hit a (shallow) bug in TmpStore that would just be
triggered by a fairly big or long subtransaction/savepoint.

Anyway, you're probably in better position to judge this than I.
