Turns out, it *will* be fixed in 2.0rc2.  This fixes a class of
problems caused by values that define __getattr__ that always
return something for any attribute thrown at them, and also
for cases where the value returned is a callable instance.

Actually, you won't -- the fix avoids running around ServerProxy
via getattr() in ways that resulted in multiple network calls
building up to very slow data retrieval.

Thanks again for reporting this!
