Not exactly. Accessed, yes. Fetched, no. This distinction is critical  
to understanding how load fetch groups are supposed to work.

Activating a fetch group doesn't do anything. Going to the back end  
to fetch instances causes the fetch plan to be analyzed and fetch  
groups to actually make something happen.

So this isn't exactly a good example, because it matters whether p1  
(the instance of PObject) is already loaded into memory or not.

So if you em.find(PObject.class, 1) then the current fetch plan is  
analyzed and if f3 is not in it, then f3 isn't fetched. Full stop.

This is wrong. Only one SQL should be issued, to fetch a specific

If this is the case, then you should stop here. The load fetch group  
for f3 must be ignored.

Here's where the trouble is. If f3 is not part of the fetch plan,  
then it should not be fetched.

This should only occur if p1 is loaded, f3 is not loaded, and f3 is

So we need to look at the test cases to validate them before we "fix"
