DeadlockDebugger installed.  I see several people have had this problem, but
no-one has posted a solution.

 zope 2.9.5 + zeo
Red Hat RHEL 4
Plone 2.5.1

Our zeo clients hang intermittently.  We have no way of reproducing the
problem, but it occurs daily.  The client hangs and a restart seems to fix

I don't know if this even relevant but I also have had Zope go into
lala land and struggled for a while trying to figure out what was
going on. Like your situation it happened intermittently and a reboot
recovered (and sometimes seemed to recover on its own). And like you I
tried various methods to spot the problem including installing

This was in various versions of Zope running on Win2003.

In the end I found it was a page/browser at the root of the problem.
It turns it is very easy to mount an inadvertent DOS attack on Zope
that kills it. In my case I had a javascript in a periodic timer event
handler (with a fairly short period) that did a page reload and under
certain circumstances didn't clear the timer causing a timer event
driven endless loop.
