Hey Chris & Others.

I'm surprised that his wasn't reported earlier. CouchDB replication
is supposed to be reliable (when we got all the bugs out), so an
external replication thing should not be necessary. I would have
guessed that reporting this is easier than writing code to circumvent
the problem. This should be fixed in CouchDB and not worked

That said, you are of course free to implement all you like in
your libraries :)
