Have you read
http://www.zope.org/Members/mcdonc/HowTos/UpgradeToNewCatalog/index_html ?
I suspect there will be improvement.

What are you referring to when you say "those things" in the sentence above?

Have you seen the "makerequest.py" script inside of the lib/python/Testing
directory?  It does what you're trying to do when you set
applic.REQUEST=REQUEST (the major difference being that it works ;-).  If
you read the Zope Developer's Guide testing and debugging chapter from its
CVS repository, I believe it's documented in there.  If you don't have the
lib/python/Testing/makerequest.py file, look on cvs.zope.org for it.

I don't know why this is, but I'd suggest you use makerequest.

I'll be curious to see the results.  Hopefully you'll have better luck under
