Exception exceptions.RuntimeError: 'maximum recursion
depth exceeded' in <bound method Transaction.__del__ of
<sqlobject.dbconnection.Transaction object at

    I want to retry my transaction when excecption occured
    during commit, I commet the threadConnection.rollback(),
    just set

    Same here,

    I can reproduce it. It happens when the database is not started.

    Here is a test code :

    Step 1 :
    Shut down you postgres server

    Step 2 : Run the following
    import sqlobject

    scheme = "postgres://myusername:mypassword@localhost/mydb"
    connection = sqlobject.connectionForURI(scheme)
    sqlobject.sqlhub.processConnection = connection
    sqlhub.threadConnection = connection.transaction()

    I cannot reproduce it. When Postgres is not started your
    program is just reports

    In my case, this was caused by an exception happening in the
    __init__ method of Transaction. The __del__ then tried to
    use self._obsolete, which had not yet been defined causing
    __getattr__ to be used which then tried to use more
    undefined stuff.
