[Zope-CMF] unit test weirdness.

Hmm, I think one problem might be that CMFCore/tests/base/testcase.py does

  import Zope

as if it's expecting this to open the database.  My version of
lib/python/Zope/__init__.py (2.6.1) indicates this no longer works unless
you set the environment variable ZOPE_COMPATIBLE_STARTUP.  Instead, it
recommends you do:



  import Zope

In other words:

  import Zope

So I'm guessing the reason CMFCore's tests work when called in a batch is
that something else opens the database first.  SCMFCore.tests.base.testcase
effectively assumes something that's not always true?
