First: did you think about the order of your base classes? There's a
passage in the LocCMFProduct Howto which explains the issues when
using different orders:

In the LocCMFProduct there are no mechanisms for the ZMI implemented.
You should see the contents of your object through the CMF interface
when you click on 'folder contents'. If you don't see that in the CMF
then there's something wrong with the order of your base classes.
