I think I understand now, you have a page view index.html with view
class HomePageView which looks up a catalog but when you go to the page:


the local catalog


is not being found, but a catalog in the root site is returned.

Unfortunately not sure why this would be happening, I would definitely
expect the local catalog to be returned first.  

Not sure if it will help but whenever I had to look up a catalog I would
only do zapi.getUtility(ICatalog) and I noticed you are also providing a
name and context.  Maybe you need to do this as you have more than one
catalog in your ++etc++site.  I think another thing to make sure is that
your local catalog provides ICatalog interface.  

I also believe that if you are looking up a catalog by name as you seem
to be doing it is not enought for the catalog object to be named
accumac_catalog but you also have to register it as the name ('Register
As' field in New Utility Registration) during catalog creation.  I
usually leave 'Register As' blank as I only ever needed to get catalog
by ICatalog interface only -> zapi.getUtility(ICatalog)
