Not a container bug but a bean bug.  The container will try to  
passivate you, you just need to make sure it can, which in this case  
means not holding onto a reference to your bean-managed  
EntityManager.  The easiest way is to destroy your EntityManager  
object in PrePassivate (close it and null the ref) and create yourself  
a new one in PostActivate.
