During, but I did discus the solution for the patch with you on IRC if you remember ? :-)

I haven't checked if it might be possible if you have 2 SQL-backends if it will try to pass the id
from the first backend to second.

But I think the pipebackend for example can result in returning a domain_id.

It looks to me like at least the pipebackend could have the same problem.

The big problem is of course if the domain_id is not initialized, then the domain_id could be any
number as I've noticed in my testing.

Yes, I know the patch, my testing of the bug and patch was with a SVN checkout which already
included that code.

OK, thanks. I'll see if I can get in touch with him.

Can I point out that it was you that changed the bug target version from 3.3 to 3.2 ? ;-)
