Hey Chris.  Thanks for the response.

Hmm.  No...do you mean Globals.InitializeClass?  I do that.

if you are asking if I have masked the CMF portal_url, the answer is no.
I'm mucking about with pdb, and the portal_url I'm working with is
definitely the correct CMF object.

I'm encountering some very odd behavior while messing around with the
CMFSite in the pdb that makes me wonder if the CMF skinned object manager
__of__ or __getattr__ is not quite functioning as it should in the context
of returning portal tools from the main CMFSite instance.  Take a gander at
this pdb dialog excerpt and see if it implies something is rotten in the
state of Denmark (I'll move this over to the CMF list if this does seem to
be something I should pursue as a possible error).  Keep an eye out for the
'***' attribute errors, and the odd behavior of some tools having a
__roles__ property and some tools not...  By the way, 'ObjectX' is an
'Alias' object in the below.  'modernsongs' is the name of my CMF instance.

(this is running on a Zope 2.5 with CMF 1.2 on a win 2k laptop.)

I did various other tests as well of course, but again I'm aiming for as
much brevity here as possible... ;)
