Following up to myself, as I had wrongly assumed that this problem was
related to file permissions in the tarball (only an issue on the 2.8
*I* introduced the bug here, by failiing to add a REQUEST parameter to
one method. I *did* test starting the server, but only using 'zopectl
fg', and not 'zopectl start', as well as running all the unit and
functional tests for each branch before checking in.
As a process fix: we should be adding functional tests which exercise
the 'start', 'restart', 'fg', etc. verbs of 'zopectl'.
Mea culpa. I owe the wine or equivalent comestibles to Andreas and Martijn.
