Read conflicts are a normal, expected part of using ZODB.  Zope normally
retries a transaction that suffers a read conflict some number of times, and
makes it visible only if the transaction continues getting read conflicts.

There's really nothing you can do at the ZODB level to minimize this.  I
hope you saved your original email, because it's a good description, but
you're much more likely to get a useful reply if you send it to a Plone (or
maybe Zope) list.

It's really not a ZODB question.

There's no evidence of a Data.fs problem here.  If you want to check anyway,
read this (which is good stuff to know anyway!):


and try fstest and fsrefs, as described there.
