Your description seems to match an error case, I have seen
under Python 2.3.4 with Linux 2.4 kernel:

  When a SIGSEGV occurs, then Zope's main thread (the ZServer thread) dies
  (and Zope therefore stops responding) but the other threads
  remain alive and keep all sockets open.

The primary culprit was Python, although the Linux thread implementation
had to help to expose the bug in this way.

I had thought that the problem were fixed in Python 2.3.5 (which you
use). Thus, maybe, your problem is different from the one
outlined above. Use OS means to check in what state the various
Zope threads are and whether the primary thread still exists.

If this is not the problem cause, you can attach your
Zope process with "gdb" and analyse the state -- especially
that of the main thread. There is a howto around how to do that.
