Hello all,

I originally sent this one just to the [EMAIL PROTECTED] list, but I just saw a bug report 
similar to this about 2.5.b2 on the Zope collector at 
http://collector.zope.org/Zope/77, so I figured I'd also submit it to you.  I'm 
running 2.5.0-src (see traceback below). 

I have a problem regarding allowing the import of extra modules.  I've found
various examples (like the "Allowing Import of Modules" in the Zope online
help) and a mailing list item entitled "Import Libraries into Python Script"
(http://lists.zope.org/pipermail/zope-dev/2001-February/009531.html), but
these aren't helping me.  I'm still getting this error.  

I'm trying to use the Reportlab toolkit from within a Zope script (NOT an
external method).  I DON'T want to just import the whole Reportlab toolkit,
because within that toolkit there are sys and os sections with what appear
to contain very dangerous items.  Therefore, I'm following more along the
lines of the help in the Zope online help.  I created a folder called
MyScriptModules in $ZOPE/lib/python/Products/.  The __init__.py file therein
looks like this:

-------------contents of __init__.py-------------------------------------
from Products.PythonScripts.Utility import allow_module, allow_class
from AccessControl import ModuleSecurityInfo, ClassSecurityInfo
from Globals import InitializeClass
from reportlab import platypus
from reportlab.lib import colors, enums, pagesizes, styles, units
from reportlab.pdfgen.canvas import Canvas
-------------end __init__.py contents---------------------------------

I only wanted to import the bare essentials of my current program and some
other classes that looked harmless but useful (like colors, enums, etc).  I
first started with ReportLab by creating a shell-based python script, which
ran perfectly and created my PDF file.  Now I'm porting it to Zope and I'm
getting errors.  Here's a curtailed example of the script.  This short
example creates the same error I'm getting in the full version of the

------------begin sample problem script-----------------------------
#_______DO ALL THE IMPORTS__________________________________________________
from reportlab import platypus
from reportlab.lib import styles, units, pagesizes
from reportlab.pdfgen.canvas import Canvas
import string
#_______END IMPORTS SECTION_________________________________________________

PAGE_WIDTH = pagesizes.letter[0]
PAGE_HEIGHT = pagesizes.letter[1]
txt_styles = styles.getSampleStyleSheet()
styleTITLE = txt_styles['Heading1']
#_______END GLOBAL VARIABLES________________________________________________

return "I didn't crash" 

-----------------------end sample problem script---------------------------

When I try to test it Zope tries to make me log in again, I do so, and it
asks me to log in repeatedly.  If I finally click "Cancel", it gives me

------------------end error condition

It never returns the phrase "I didn't crash."  However, if I comment out the
line "styleTITLE = txt_styles['Heading1']" it does complete successfully.
That means that the "pagesizes" stuff did import properly, because the
PAGE_HEIGHT and PAGE_WIDTH get calculated properly (I can even return those
successfully).  Sorry for the long email, but I wanted to give a complete
description of what I'm up against here.  I suspect there's some problem in
my __init__.py that's preventing me from accessing subobjects of what I've
imported, but I'm not sure how to resolve it.
