You can abort the transaction at the end of your "standard_error_message".

You will need an External Method, as "get_transaction" is not
available to TTW code.

The alternative is to put the "abort" in "ZPublisher.Publish.publish".
This, of course, implies a Zope modification.

I tried (in our private Zope installation) to do error handling
in the same transaction as the main thread (as Toby suggested).
But I failed due to a "get_transaction().begin()" at the begin of error
handling (this calls an implicite "abort").
