thanks again,
yes, the python versions I use are compiled for threads, they link
against libpthread under linux. I have also found ZmxODBCDA adapter and
it does not work for me yet - it shows in Zope as broken product.
        I also spoke to local Oracle hotline and they said that ODBC access is
not thread safe until due to some error in OCI libs. Now I am
downloading Oracle for Linux and Sybase for Linux and I will try to
compile OracleDA and SybaseDA.

Thanks a lot all.

If Python is compiled without threads, there is no module
"thread". Zope relies on this module. It dies immediately,
if it is not there. Thus, you can be sure, your
Python has thread support compiled in.

The Python that comes with Zope has thread support compiled in.

Maybe, your Python-ODBC connection "forgets" to release
Python's interpreter lock.

We, once, had such a problem.
   Accidentally, the DCOracle module had been set up with a standard
   Python distribution (with threading disabled) rather
   than the Zope Python. As a consequence, the
   DCOracle did not call "releaseLock" and
   "acquireLock" (as they would not be present
   in a non-threaded Python).
   And, of course, database operations blocked Zope.
