DDC-2631: Replacing object in a OneToOne with OrphanRemoval=true isn't working as expected #3365

Jira issue originally created by user guaycuru:

So I have a class defined like this:

class PhoneSettings {

 * @OneToOne(targetEntity="Medium", cascade={"persist", "remove"}, orphanRemoval=true)
 * @JoinColumn(name="medium*id", referencedColumnName="medium*id", nullable=true, onDelete="SET NULL")
protected $medium = null;


And class Medium has no reference to the class Settings.

Now suppose I have a $Settings object that is already persisted and has been correctly loaded. Also suppose that the $Settings object has a $medium (that is, $Settings->medium = $OldMedium)

Now suppose I do:

$Settings->medium = $NewMedium;
Where $NewMedium is a different Medium object.

When I persist $Settings, Doctrine does delete $OldMedium from the DB, but the problem is that it also deletes $NewMedium ...

I have tried removing onDelete="SET NULL", but then I receive a "cannot delete, constraint failed" error...
