When two txns (commits in progress) both need to change a node. There's
no way to know which one will finish first and therefore commit first.
The second txn to initiate the change process gets the branch ID, but
it may well be the first to commit. In fact, if something gets
interrupted, the non-branch ID may never get committed at all.

As you can imagine, this happens more often to directory nodes nearer
the top of the tree.
