The MVCC implementation might not be prepared to cope with an explicit
call to invalidate. Yould also achieve this by calling some method on
the object, right? _p_invalidate()? I don't remember the details.
In either case, I suspect that is a bug in the implementation, but
it's not clear if it explains your problem.
