Note also that a patch like this one (against the current Zope 2 trunk, you may need to change it based on whichever version of Zope you're using) might shed more light on where your conflict errors are coming from:

Let me see if I got this right:

According to ZODB.Mount.MountPoint: mount points are Zope objects
that, when traversed, accesses a different database.

Do they report themselves as the container-class defined in zope.conf?
I mean, when I traverse to /temp_folder what do I get? Is it the
MountPoint instance or the container-class instance? Where should I
look for this code?

I have "tried" faster but without any luck. I modified OFS.Application
and replaced TransientObjectContainer with
faster.SessionDataContainer, but still I had too many ConflictErrors
(didn't make any measure to compare with TransientObjectContainer).

What I have not grasped yet, is how the whole MountPoint thing works
so that /temp_folder vanishes when Zope dies. This must be a
TemporaryStorage in another DB, accessed thru the MointPoint, but I
have not found where this is done.

Thanks for your response, and best regards,

/temp_folder is a "mount point" (see your zope.conf file).

Whether or not you put a session data container inside of a temp
folder, you may get better conflict-related performance out of
"faster", a drop-in replacement for the stock Zope sessioning
machinery...  see
faster/  (but you might not, it depends on the sessioning access
pattern).  In particular "faster" is much better conflict-wise when
sessions are accessed but not changed in the course of a request.
