Not a problem: if one person doesn't understand what they're seeing,
then at least a hundred more won't understand it either, and it's very
good to have a discussion about it archived on a public mailing list

So do I, but there's difference: I open a DOS box and type
"bin\runzope" myself. What I never do is use the Start menu
"shortcut". A DOS box you open yourself stays visible even if Zope
dies ungracefully, and after the first time you type "bin\runzope" you
only have to hit two keys (up-arrow ENTER) to start it again.

Doesn't the ZMI have a "restart Zope" button? If you open your own
DOS box, then a sloppy all-keyboard restart dance is "Ctrl+Break
up-arrow ENTER", and a careful all-keyboard restart dance is "Ctrl+C
up-arrow ENTER". The latter gives Zope a chance to close files
gracefully, but by the same token it takes longer for Zope to shut
down. "Ctrl+Break" kills the process instantly (and runs some risk of
leaving data in I/O buffers without writing it to disk).
