You are not by any chance interested in taking over maintenance of
ZSQLMethods, are you?

We documented it pretty clearly in the Zope 2.12.0 release notes, that
you can no longer rely on software home or zope home. See for example

The code should have long been changed to import Shared.DC.ZRDB and
then os.path.join(ZRDB.__file__, 'www', 'DBAdapterFolder_icon.gif') or
better yet use its own icon. Both of these would have worked with all
2.12.x releases.

We don't make guarantees on internals. Zope 2 always had a policy of
allowing minor changes and new features to occur in the stable release
series. It's not just pure bugfix releases.

I think in this case the code in Products.ZMySQLDA should be changed
to be compatible with Zope 2.12.
