Hello zope-dev, as a suggestion from another mailing list user i have forwarded my current problem to this list. To summarize it seems that due to some hard drive corruption my zopedb has been left open with a lot of open transactions. When i try to clean the db with fsrecover i get numerous version lock errors and the db wont load. I have included my email to ZobDB-dev as a more thorought explanation.
