It is a "known" limitation of Zope, which has a set number of "worker
threads" available to service user requests.  If a worker thread blocks
(e.g., waiting for MySQL), it is not able to do any work for other
pending requests.

You can tweak the number of threads in your zope.conf file, via the
'zserver-threads' directive (the default value is 4).  If you do
increase this value, you also need to increase the number of database
connections avialble (via 'pool-size') which will increase the RAM
required by your appserver.

Not that I know of.
