Behaviour like this can easily happen when mutable objects
(such as lists) are directly modified without that the containing
persistent object is informed about the change.

In this case, the modification is made in place but the change
may not be persisted. This means, the change is visible (for some time)
in the connection that made the change but other connections cannot
see them.

The change may finally either be persisted (when the changing connection
modifies the containing persistent object for some unrelated reason)
or be lost (when the object is flushed from the ZODB cache before
the above mentioned thing happened).
