Not that I think it is a good solution in this case, but since you  
have it in place already - here is how you can do transactions  
wrapping multiple DataContexts (this will require 1.2 release)

I am yet convinced that this would be a good general DB commit  
strategy (it might as well be, still I am not ready now to discuss  
this in depth). But here is a thing - nested contexts do use the FIFO  
strategy when committing from one to another, and  the needed change  
order information is available already during commit. So we'll gladly  
accept a patch that implements a FIFO strategy as an option ;-)

Still I'd like to understand what causes the original problem... Is  
this a SQLServer/Informix thing??? I've never seen it on Oracle or
