Glad you found the bug.

"There is no free space in this set!" usually happens when an object
within a set or as key of a dictionary changes its hash. Rehashing the
set/dictionary helps, but usually the hash should not depend on
mutable values.

"There is no free space in this set!" occasionally happened in earlier
versions of Seaside, because the backtracking screwed up some internal
data structure of the set/dictionary/bag.
