I can only partially help you.

Unfortunately, "ZConfig" is *VERY* bad with respect to the help
it provides to understand the causes of so called "configuration problems":

   It turns all exceptions (configuration problems or else) into
   "ConfigurationError"s and in this process cuts of valuable

   Thus, we have heavy loss of information that would be helpful
   to analyse problems occuring during configuration but that
   are not configuration errors (but some import problems,
   or incompatibilities with the Python version as in your case).

   Very bad design in this respect....

When I meet such a case ("ZConfig" stupidly tells me about a
"ConfigurationError" which is not (primarily) a configuration error),
I temporarily change the "ZConfig" source:

  At places

     try: ....
     except ....:
       raise ...ConfigurationError(...)

I add a "raise" line before the "raise ...ConfigurationError()".
By this, I get the original exception and especially the
original traceback and then can usually quickly find the original

In your special case, some quessing may give a faster result.

It is likely that the original problem comes from
You can put a breakpoint there and then determine by single stepping
the cause.

An additional guess may give even a faster result.
Problably the following lines are to blame:

    if (not isinstance(cat, types.ClassType) or
        not issubclass(cat, Warning)):
        raise ValueError("invalid warning category: %s" % `category`)

Almost surely, Python made its "Warning" class a new style class
such that "isinstance(cat, types.ClassType)" fails now.
