I didn't think the view Btree index included the _rev. If it did it would
allow really neat things like proper view etags, as well as preventing the
race condition you describe.

However if it did, I would also expect the rev to be in the raw view rows,


Do you mean that you have emit(..., {_rev: doc._rev}) in your view? In that
case check the code to see if the _rev is used without an explicit _id.  Or
you could try

    emit(..., {_id: doc._id, _rev: doc._rev})

to see if that behaves any better.

There is a LOG_DEBUG just above that. What does it show? In particular, is
Rev nil? In that case you'll just get "current" version. Or is it getting
the rev of a deleted doc?

I tried walking the code but got a bit lost. I was trying to check whether
Rev is always nil, or is taken from view row _rev member, or somewhere else.
