Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1649) deleted documents reappear when _revs_limit reached when running replication

Ian Ward created COUCHDB-1649:

             Summary: deleted documents reappear when _revs_limit reached when running replication
                 Key: COUCHDB-1649
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Replication
            Reporter: Ian Ward

When the number of allowed revisions for a document as determined by _revs_limit is surpassed,
the document can be deleted but will then reappear as undeleted.  The following steps show
this behavior:

- Create two databases, "A" and "B"
- Set _revs_limit on both databases to 3
- Create a document "foo" on database "A" (creates rev 1)
- Edit and save the document (creates rev 2)
- Edit and save the document again (creates rev 3)
- Edit and save the document again (creates rev 4)
- Run replication (non continuous, for testing purposes), replicating database "A" to "B"
- Delete document "foo" on database "A" (creates rev 5.  We're now two revs over the _revs_limit,
though we could be just 1 rev over and this problem will occur as well)
- Replicate from A to B.  Replicate from B to A.

You should now see that document "foo" appears on both databases, not deleted, and has the
original revision number.  What I expected is that the document would remain in a deleted
state, since the newest/latest revision before the last step where both databases replicate
is the "deleted" revision.

I've tested that this occurs on versions 1.1 and 1.2.  1.1 on Ubuntu Precise using couchbase
deb, 1.2 on Ubuntu Quantal using core package.  Here is a bash script and sample output which
shows the behavior
