Creating a new object immediately after deleting one with the same key

Hi all,

While testing a simple go / protobuf driver I encountered
following behaviour:

After deleting an object and creating a new one with the same
key immediately afterwards Riak creates a sibling of the new
object. Trying to fetch an object with the key directly before
creating the new one fails.

If the timespan between delete and create is greater than ~3
seconds everything works as expected.

Is this behaviour documented somewhere? Does the required
minimal timespan depend on the cluster setup or is it

I'm currently using Riak v2.0.0 on OS X locally, allow_mult is
set to true.

Best regards,

Tilo Soenke
