I have a similar situation where I allow admin users to view a "deleted"
record in some situations (we mark records "invalidated"=true rather than
actually delete data, then the application's restricting qualifiers
automatically hide these records from the view of the application).
This is how I detect and handle such a dangling one-to-one.
PaymentMethod aPaymentMethod =
if (PersistenceState.TRANSIENT !=
aPaymentMethod.getPersistenceState()) // then it exists
else // it doesn't exist
This is used under 1.1M5, I believe.
