OK, so let's answer my own email in case somebody comes into the same
problem one day.
I changed my configuration to use IIS instead of Medusa of the front end.
Since then, everything is fine. Now instead of using my.server.com:8080/ ,
I simply use my.server.com/zope.cgi/. I simply followed the excellent
How-to available under http://www.zope.org/Members/brianh/iis_howto. I only
had a few problems for the authentication. To be able to use Zope for the
authentication, make sure you allow Anonymous login and that you set all
the "Custom Errors" of IIS to default. Else you won't be able to log into
Zope management screen for example ;-)
