The problem is that one of your databases doesn't define the commit_sub()
and abort_sub() methods on the DB class it exposes.  You don't say which SQL
database you're using, but this happened to me on a consulting project with
ZOracleDA.  A solution is to add the following methods to the database
adapter's DB class inside DB.py:

def commit_sub(self, *arg, **kw):
   pass

def abort_sub(self, *arg, **kw):
   pass

This isn't optimal, because it sort of breaks transactional integrity, but
it does make it work.
