Referencing by ObjectOutputStream.  The second time you serialize the 
object out over the stream, ObjectOutputStream replaces it with a 
reference back to the one it just sent.  In one of the older JVMs, this 
kept things that were serialized from being garbage collected, although 
that's been fixed now.
