Do you have a DCOracle version later than 1.3.2?
We use 1.3.2; we have increased the cache from 400 (the default) to
1000, to no avail. Our ZODB size, last I checked, was ~40M. I 
remember you mentioning that yours was less then 10M, I think; how
much cache do you use?

Zope starts Oracle processes from Java??? All the zombies we see are
Zope-spawned... a Zope zombie-collection problem has been reported
independently of Oracle.

...which confuses me, because we use 8.0.5.
