What your method is doing, is stepping through every object at the root of
your Zope server. Not every object there is accessible by anonymous. Even in
a fresh Zope installation, Control_Panel is restricted to managers, so that
is the likely culprit.

To get around this problem, there is an argument for dtml-in called
"skip_unauthorized" which will automatically skip over any objects that the
current user is not authorized to access.

Changing your dtml-in statement to:
<dtml-in objectValues skip_unauthorized>

Will prevent this error. However, you will get every little object in your
root directory. So, standard_html_header, index_html, standard_html_footer,
etc. will appear. If you want to exclude these, specify just the meta types
you want to objectValues. For instance, to show only folders try this:

<dtml-in expr="objectValues(['Folder'])" skip_unauthorized>

To show folders and DTML documents, try this:

<dtml-in expr="objectValues(['Folder','DTML Document'])" skip_unauthorized>
etc., etc.
