I'll just kill the live objects index.  Good enough for you, good
enough for me.  I don't think I have any cases where I ever need to be
sure the objects are the same.

Still, wish I could make it happen.  It happens when no objects have
been updated -- and I would have thought that doing a retrieve on an
row and then having that same row selected in my count() that would
trigger the problem.

Something unsettling about fixing a problem before being able to
make it happen.

The advantage of the way I'm doing it is that I can generate paged
views of the records and it's easy to sort by the count column in the
select.  Plus, it's one trip to the database for the entire table I
need to display.
