There's certainly nothing ZODB does that can reach into _your_ module
and change the binding of your module-global name "transaction".  This
really has nothing to do with the transaction module, it has to do
with module-global name bindings, one of which happens to be named
"transaction" here.

Python itself rebinds a module's global names to None as part of
tearing a module down (part of module destruction).  "This or that
can't be None" is an irritatingly common exception seen during Python
shutdown as a result, when various user-defined cleanup code happens
to run after Python has "None'd out" the globals of the module
containing such code.

If this is happening during shutdown, that's probably it.  But this
looks like some "funny way" of running Python code I don't know much
about, perhaps with its own inscrutable rules about what happens to
module globals.

As a workaround, you could try moving the import inside the function,
so that "transaction" becomes a local name in your function rather
than a global name in your module.
