Hope this wasn't seen as just me holding things up.

I appreciate your efforts on initResolutions Eric.  I really think this 
needs attention.  It is a particularly fragile area of the code however. 
  I just added additional tests to #2427.  I'd be interested in 
continuing to flesh out those tests to really nail down what 
initResolutions is supposed to do.  Currently (without your rewrite), 12 
of those tests fail (and it is easy to come up with more that also 
fail).  With the rewrite, 27 of those tests fail.

If there is a particularly egregious case that currently fails, it might 
be good to settle on a simple fix (though I know the 2.9 train is 
leaving the station).
