Other DA's (e.g. "ZMySQLDA") interpret "0" as "no limitation".
The same interpretation is used in Zope session implementation.

Interpreting "0" as "do not return any results" is not useful.

That would seem reasonable...

But the code looks different:

    you fail 1000 times, then you close/reopen and try again.

Thank you for the offer.

However, the problem happens non-deterministically; we cannot yet
reproduce it.
I will let you know when we know more...
