IMHO, this is a bug in the generated code for pcNewInstance.

I don't understand why the pcNewInstance should ever call
pcClearFields. It just got finished creating a new instance, and it
knows that all fields have been set to their Java default values.
[That's why we require the user to specify a no-args constructor, so
the implementation doesn't have to initialize anything.] I don't think
that calling pcClearFields is warranted during this life cycle phase.

I had read this and assumed that it was an OpenJPA-generated
method, but
if so, there shouldn't be a line number. Did you reverse-compile your
classes at some point and change the synthetic interception methods?

That is the original method with a new name.  As the documentation
states, the getters and setters used in property access may appear
with a "pc" prefix in stack traces under OpenJPA.
