I stand corrected. Thanks, Geoff.

We are keeping a reference to ZODB-managed data throughout awake/sleep,
but we always nullify it before sleep is done. (We set all zodb and
object references to None) When the servlet goes back to the pool, it
should have no references to any zodb stuff, unless zodb is sneaking
something in via some of its deep-magic plumbing.
Thanks for the help.
