in the past days I have been experiencing mysterious crashes,
under heavy load conditions with 

Zope version: Zope 2.1.6 (binary release, python 1.5.2, solaris-2.6-sparc) 
Python version: 1.5.2 (#8, Nov 16 1999, 10:05:41) [GCC 2.8.1] 
System Platform: sunos5 

        Since that was the sensible choice, I was running Zope as
user "nobody". Completely by chance, I run it as a 'normal' user
(neither root, nor nobody). I was surprised to realize that it
would not crash any more, no matter how much I pounded it with
wget and similar tools.

        I was running it from a terminal, where every now and
then interesting messages pop up:

2000-06-30T22:33:44 PROBLEM(100) ZServer warning: server accept() threw EWOULDBLOCK

        Could be that, when running as nobody, Zope could not do something
that it has do after an exception ? It could be something as simple as
writing to /tmp or logging things with syslogd ... anyway, it could be
something that Solaris prevents it from doing, which in turn causes the

        Now, I am still keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow I have a demo.

        So, apologies if all this is old hat, and thanks for the wonderful
list environment.
