I think I've seen the error message when @Version attributes have been
used. Do you happen to use it in the entities of yours? Could you
elaborate a bit more about your application? How does the
persistence.xml look like? Could you narrow down the issue to some
test case?

I guess you want to work around the issue of orphaned keys [1], don't
you? If so, there's a note that "One way of avoiding orphaned keys is
to use dependent fields.", so I guess (again), there must be another
way to work it out as it's noted as 'one way' ;-)
