What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Run the attached script

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect to see conflicts resolved resulting in doc with value=10
Instead I get KeyError: 'http://localhost:5984/keyerror_test/test'
/couchdb/", line 251, in request
    del self.cache[url]

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
couchdb-python 0.8, python 2.7, Ubuntu 11.04

Please provide any additional information below.

I can fix this issue by changing lint 251 of to 

    del self.cache[url]
except KeyError, e:

I guess this is a threading issue as self.cache has been altered between line 165 and line 251. Is it even valid to use couchdb-python in this way?

Note, I originally discovered this in my Pylons web app when I would get this exception during a Mapping.load(db, id) call.

couchdb.http.Session does attempt to be thread-safe so I'd definitely say you're using it just fine and this is a bug. Thanks for reporting!
