RestrictedTraverse on a list will assume it is a path of ids. restrictedTraverse on a string will assume it is a URL. A path of ids that starts with '' is a absolute path, just like a URL that starts with '/'. So, the path list [''] means the root/application object, just like '/' means the root/application object. However  is an empty path, and is therefore the same as the URL ''. So, the above behaviour is expected and as defined. -- Lennart Regebro, Nuxeo http://www.nuxeo.com/ CPS Content Management http://www.cps-project.org/ _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
