We have been seeing something similar on Windows.  Where there are lots of
zeo-cache files + .tbufs lying around.  This does not happen all the time. I was
presuming it had something to do with signal handling/windows/tempfile.
We have not found a way to reproduce the problem but have seen it at several
customer environments.
