I've found some of the issues here, but I still can't make the conflict
handling reliable.  I've put in the test simply asserting that one or
other record becomes a conflict, until we can get back to this.  It
would be very helpful to me if you could look at this area, as this
should be deterministic :-(.

Still, at least is no longer stops or crashes.
