[Zope-CMF] Recipe for ReadConflictError hell

Here's a way to kill your CMF performance and grow your Data.fs hugely ;-)
1. Add a new skin folder to one of your products
2. Add this skin folder as a FSDV in your portal_skins tool, and insert
it into one of the skin definitions your using on the properties tab.
3. Delete the skin folder
4. Restart Zope
5. View your CMF site and watch the conflict errors roll in :-(
The source of the conflict error appears to be DirectoryView's __of__
method. And, for whatever reason, this also seems to cause a commit to
the ZODB for each and every request Zoep received that passes through
the CMF machinery :-(
The solution is to remove the skin layer from the portal_skins tool's
properties tab, made more tricky by the fact you sometimes get errors
when visiting the skins tool when this is happening.
Is this one to be chalked down as "don't do that", or is there a bug
lurking here that means I should report this in the collector?
