But it's nonsense! If weakref exists then some other object has ref to
the obj! And weakValueDictionary is cleaned up automatically when the
last strong ref disappears.

Destroying obj with this logic is absurd:
def _reduce_size(self, strictly_less=False):
    target = self.pool_size - bool(strictly_less)
    while len(self.available) > target:
        c = self.available.pop(0)  <== we have ref to the connection
here, before calling remove

def remove(self, obj):
    del self.data[id(obj)]         <== there is no use to delete obj by
deleting weakref... we just deleting weakref from the

Try this:
1. add this method to Connection class definition

def __del__(self):
    print 'Destruction...'

then do this:
>>> import sys
>>> sys.path.append('/opt/Zope/lib/python')
>>> from ZODB import Connection
>>> c = Connection.Connection()
>>> del(c)
>>> c = Connection.Connection()
>>> del(c._cache)
>>> del(c)
You can NOT delete object because _cache keeps reference to it... and
connection remains forever!!! It's cache has RDB connection objects and
they are not closed. Connection becomes inaccessible and unobtainable
trough the connection pool.
That's what I wanted to say. It's definitely a BUG.

Don't bother... it's RDB DA handle.

Okay... we moved from Zope 2.7.4, that blocked with small number of
threads and pool_size with high site activity, so we had to increase
those numbers. Anyway in the default configuration of 4 threads and
pool_size of 7 we can watch lots of lost connections, and we now know
both that it's a bug... so we have big pool_size to avoid connection
"deletion" (loosing).
