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 branch, apparanetly). *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.
