Dave and I spent some time on this yesterday. He has the notes so can give
a better summary than I can, but our feeling is that something bad is going
on with replication and this patch at best masks it. However the problem
only seems to arise within etap tests where database creation and
replication happens in Erlang - do everything via the HTTP API and
something happens between operations that allows it to work OK.

When Dave has time to post more detailed findings someone may look at them
and spot the problem quickly. Otherwise I'm not sure of the best way
forward: the community could take as long as it takes to get to the bottom
of the problem, or we could say that the issue probably relates only to
tests, remove the ones that break and put out a release while working on a
solution in the background. Neither option is great.
