I have a strong suspicion that nearly all bugs like this are the result
of a stack overflow.  It may be worth the effort to either:

(1) Create a modified Python that would catch stack overflows before
they happen
(2) Get Zope running on microthreads/stackless Python (has anyone
tried?) and gain a little more control over the stacks.
