ouch; this is a fairly important bug (and failing in the 
relations between the engine and the database implementaiton 
backend) in MySQL, and a great catch by tou, Mike in finding 
it.

The shim relies on contiguous uid's by and large, and the 
initially proposed workaround of doing single inserts, is a 
pretty non-compelling solution. ;(
