Right: please file a bug report.

The fix is (almost surely) to replace in ".../Zope/App/startup.py":

   if t is ZPublisher.Retry: v.reraise()

by

   if t is ZPublisher.Retry: t, v, traceback = v._args

This should only happen when "publish" itself raises an exception.
Usually, "publish" should *NOT* raise an exception, when
the request fails (although exceeding the maximal number
of retries may cause this).


Nevertheless, the mixed use of "response" and "request.response"
in "publish_module_standard"
looks wrong. Almost surely, "request.response" should
get the value of "response" when "publish" succeeds and
both are different.
Thus I expect, we should have:

     response = publish(...)
     request.response = response
  except ...


Please file two bug reports for the problems you discovered...
