Inconsistent HSQL database behavior

Please include as much relevant information as possible including the exact framework version you're using and a code snippet that reproduces the problem.

Framework version: 1.2.1
Platform you're using: Java

Reproduction steps:


When I run my unit tests, there are periodic failures for this test:

    public void addCommentFromDesigner(){
        Profile profile = Profile.all().first();
        User author = User.findByUsername("testdesigner");
        profile.addComment("This profile is really awesome.", author);

        assertEquals(2, profile.comments.size());

        //should be the first comment because they're sorted by date
        assertEquals("This profile is really awesome.", profile.comments.get(0).comment.text);
        assertEquals(author.username, profile.comments.get(0).comment.author.username);

The problem is that profile.comments is ordered by date. When you add a new comment, this should result in the first comment being the new one. This is true, but only half of the time. So half of the time this test passes and half of the time this test fails.

Don't have too much expectations. Unless the bug is really a serious "everything is broken" thing, you're creating a ticket to start a discussion. Having a patch (or a branch on Github we can pull from) is better, but then again we'll only pull high quality branches that make sense to be in the core of Play.
