Sorry, I don't know anything about how your app uses RDB connections.  ZODB
isn't creating them on its own ;-)

I don't like the word "killed" here, because it seems highly misleading.
ZODB doesn't destroy any Connections or any caches.  ZODB destroys all its
strong references to old Connections, and that's all.  Nothing can be done
to _force_ Connections to go away forever.  It's ZODB's job here to make
sure it isn't forcing Connections (beyond the pool_size limit) to stay
alive, and it's doing that job.  It can't "kill" Connections.

There's one cache per Connection.  If and when a Connection goes away, its
cache goes away too.  So when you say something "stays in cache forever", I
don't know what you mean -- you apparently have many (hundreds? thousands?)
of Connections, in which case you also have many (hundreds or thousands) of
caches.  I don't know how an RDB-Connection gets into even one of those
caches to begin with.

At this point I have to hope that someone else here understands what you're
doing.  If not, you may have better luck on the zope-db list (which is
devoted to using other databases with Zope):
