Subject 409 Conflict on attempt to add new document
Date Sun, 23 Oct 2011 10:37:36 GMT
I just ran a program to add 6,412 new documents to a freshly-created, empty database.

All of the documents were added, but CouchDB reported an error (HTTP status 409 Conflict)
for one of them.  This is troubling for several reasons:

The document did not previously exist, but was being added for the first time, like all the
others.  It was also in no way different than those; in particular, the JSON did not contain
a _rev field.
Despite the error, the document was successfully added.

This would appear, therefore, to be a spurious error.  Could this be a bug?  This is Cloudant's
hosted version (CouchDB 1.0.2, Cloudant build 1.3.22).
