Oh, it is a decimal(15,2) column.  (all of them are)  Just thought I'd
mention everything too... Running Ubuntu 5.0.4, has the Python 2.4.1
package installed, but I have Python 2.3.4 compiled and installed
separately for Zope.  Zope is compiled with the --with-python flag.

Just tried your suggestion, commenting the 'conv[FIELD_TYPE.DECIMAL] =
float' line, restart Zope, still have the issue.

So, I have the older Python, which I used to have.  I could try
loading an older Zope, but what I might try is loading the MySQL
5.0.0, which I had before.  At least I can hopefully find out which is
causing my problem.  However, I have Zope 2.7.4 with MySQL 5.0.4 and
it works fine, but on Windows using the Egenix adapter.  Now, I cant
remember what I had for the mysql-python version, it's on the other
server at my clients site. (cant get to it right now)

I guess one of my main questions too is, would Zope be getting
anything from the 2.4.1 Ubuntu packages that are installed if I
compiled it with the 2.3.4 python?  (mysql-python is installed
correctly on 2.3.4 too)
