You made this issue easy to track down.

This seems like a bug w/ the native map.  The code allocates a unique int
for each key/value in the mutation.

It seems like the native map code should increment like the DefaultMap code
does.  Specifically it seems like the following code should increment
mutationCount (coordinating with the code that calls it)

Would you like to open an issue in Jira?
