even if it's in the zope directory, the value of the environment variable
$PWD should be checked to be sure it's set to the zope directory.  if that
script is geting thrown into the background, it should keep that value,
but you never know (especially if you're getting an error reporting that
the start script couldn't be found)

it could run every minute out of cron... 

it wouldn't be perfect, but it'd keep the server up and buy you the time
to find a more permanent solution.
