DDC-2775: Bug with cascade remove #3522

Jira issue originally created by user mnapoli:

I have met a bug with cascade remove that I managed to reproduce with this use case (see also the diagram in the attachments):

  • User has many Roles
  • Roles has many Authorization
  • User has also many Authorization (cache of all authorizations of all roles)

All these associations are bidirectional, and with "cascade remove".

When I remove User:

User cascade remove on Role

Role cascade remove on Authorization

User cascade remove on Authorization

If collections are lazy-loaded, then step 1. will clear the roles from the identityMap, but step 3. will reload the roles (because the authorizations will be lazy-loaded) and re-insert them in the identityMap.

As a consequence, the first flush() succeeds, but any further flush() yields:

[Doctrine\ORM\ORMInvalidArgumentException] A new entity was found through the relationship 'Role#user' that was not configured to cascade persist operations for entity...

I am creating a PR with a testcase, and probably a fix.
