DERBY-700 (Derby does not prevent dual boot of database from different 
class loaders)
is a huge problem and I have seen it lead to corruption in many user 
cases.  If anyone has any fresh ideas on how to address that one it 
would be a big plus for 10.6.

Another one that comes up often in practice and tends to give users a 
big surprise is https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3609 (Wrong 
functonality of auto-generated keys support), specifically lack of 
support for  autogenerated keys for multirow inserts. Since this is a 
standard deviation it would be good to see it fixed.  Currently I am the 
only one that has voted for it, but I know it has hit others.

I think users don't tend to vote for these issues because they just 
expect they will work.  Then they are hit and have to work around it 
somehow so don't bother voting then.
