do you mean that __setstate__ should never be overriden or that I must
do something wrong that could be done in another way ?

I used __setstate__ to build a non persistent attribute from some
persistent data in my object. I've discussed with Lennart Regebro about
my problem and I've finished by putting all my setstate code in a
method which should be called instead of directly access to the
attribute, so the attribute is built on the first call.
