Hi all,

Thanks for this file! Yesterday I thought I'd lost it, altough I heard more
rumours of 'slowdown' I couldn't find a solution for my problem since I gave
that demo and zope was so slow... you should have seen my face at that
moment (completely red!).
I tried everything, reinstallation of zope and interbase drivers, etc...
My last resort was going to an earlier version of zope, or trying to use
pcgi, but this morning I found this patch in my mailbox. I tried it
and...... nice! All problems were gone.

So, now I can give the demo again and zope will be fast again :-)!

Regards, Tom

ps. Can you give more information on this? ie something more than the lines
below. It seems an interesting case.
