The quick way to determine this: install a fresh Zope without 
SybaseDA installed and see if you can reproduce the kid-clicking 

Another thing potentially to look at: there is problem with 
Sybase connections that I have run into before where if you 
have a request that runs a transactional query, then a non-
transactional query, then trys another transactional query 
you get a hang :(  I don't know if this could be the case 
here, but if so you might want to look here for more info:
