Oh, silly me. # create a person with a car and then store them my $car = Car->new(...); my $person = Person->new(car => $car); $storage->insert($person); # now delete the car! $storage->erase($car); # This is what you're missing. $storage->update($person); Show quoted text

ok, I'll make a bug report for this behaviour, there should either be an error or behave as if the data was NULL in the first place. Show quoted text

Sure. So, you're using the CarOwner group of attributes as a slave class in the multiple inheritance sense - not a superclass in the pure OO sense. -- Sam Vilain, After all is said and done, a lot more has been said than done.
