Actually, at least in Linux, with a recent gdb, you can attach gdb to zope in multithread mode. Just take the "-t 1" from the command line sugested by the StabilityHOWTO and you're set. Best results are achieved by compiling everything from source (python even, use the --prefix=/path/to/zope-src so as not to mix up with your installed python and be careful to use this python when installing zope) and running: $ VARIABLE=value gdb path/to/your/python (gdb) run z2.py -Z '' where VARIABLE=value should be replaced by the env vars that are set in the ./start script inside Zope. > Is this problem solved if I install python 2.2 for example?

Can I be of any help tracking down this bug? I don't know about Zope Corp. in general, but Matt Kromer has been trying to help as much as his time permits. I think you're helping a lot just by reporting this problem because it helps raise awarenes to the fact that the stability problems aren't all solved with the last Zope/Python releases. So far there are three confirmed cases of instability: yours, mine and Dario's. All of them seem to involve PythonScripts, although this might not be related, and all of them are solved by using '-t 1' (is that correct, Dario?) so it looks like a threading issue. Let's just hope ZC or someone else in the community with more knowledge of the Zope/Python internal arcana can help us debug this, 'cause it's reached the limit of our exploration capability.
