[Zope] Mutiple images don't always show up

It kind of make me feel better to know other people have observed the same 
problem. I found the following message in the mailing list by Pierre-Julien 
Grizel around 09/04/2000, with title: [Zope] Images slow rendering problem


So, it does seem that Zope 2.1.6 has some problems handling multiple images. 
The problem seems to happen at least with Unix flavor OS (Linux, Solaris, 
FreeBSD,) and seems to be browser-independent (Netscape and IE alike). I 
don't think it's the If-Modified-Since problem, since I have applied the 
patch in http://classic.zope.org:8080/Collector/1388/view
and it did not make a difference.

PS- correction: in my previous message, where I said Zope 2.1.x, should have 
been 2.2.x.
