Now this is really weird. I could swear I recompiled all python scripts.
I ZCataloged them all and then recompiled them in chunks. But I still
get those anoying 'needs recompiling' messages. I wonder if it'd be too
bad an idea to set self._p_changed = 1 at PythonScript.__setstate__ to
make the transient recompilation permanent.

Anyway, now that we've ruled out ZMySQLDA (twice, once by taking it out
of the picture and another by installing the newest, multithreaded,
serialized, version). I can't seem to get a core, but I can get gdb
attached to it. I intend to do just that. What's the best way to prepare
a Zope instalation for this investigation? should I compile it all
(python and Zope) from source? what options should I pass where to get a
compilation with all the symbols and how should I run Zope to be able to
see the source code once I'm stoped inside it?

I'm used debugging with gdb, but I don't know much about python
internals, specially cycle-gc related. Once I trap the segfault, what
should I look for? I mean, besides the stack trace?

I intend investigate this tomorrow (Friday) at 14:00(BRT). This is
17:00(GMT) and 12:00(EST). Matthew, and anyone else interested, I'll be
on IRC throughout this (nick is L-array), so if you guys want to help me
out I'd really appreciate it.

Let's nail down this bastard.

Ideas don't stay in some minds very long because they don't like
solitary confinement.
