OK, after investigating the reduce test further with X-Couch-Full- 
Commit: true and discussing with Paul, I think the race conditions may  
be due to the browser using a different socket to access the reduce  
query after bulk-saving a number of docs.  As for why a different  
Erlang process may not see the update immediately, this isn't clear.   
The disk_size reported in the first (faulty response) query is also  
incorrect compared to the second (correct response) query so it looks  
like maybe the file descriptor is stale when the first reduce query  

No-one else seems to have reproduced this so far.  It might help to  
run CouchDB locally so that network delays don't mask the race
