I did notice today that IIS 4.0 seems to be the cullprit. Whenever Zope
returns a 400 error (like 'sorry, an error occured') IIS mangles that into
the 400 Bad Request error.
This means the traceback is also gone. *grmbl*. Just try and add a
Principia Draft and not specify an ID, and compare this to the message
returned when using ZopeHTTPServer. I think I'll switch to ZServer.

Maybe this should go into the FAQ... I'll cc to ZDP

BTW, I hereby retract the bug I reported to the Zope Collector regarding
ZODBC connections being broken. I forgot to fill in the ID :|. IIS mangles
the returned errormessage.

What is the procedure for retracting bug reports? mail support@digicool.com?
