We run a Zope website for almost a year now and the last
week Zope failed twice. Instead of the homepage, we got
an error message.

Strange thing is that the management pages and a password
protected part of the site worked ok.

I could get Zope working by:
1) Shutting Zope down
2) Deleting the file /var/lib/zope/var/cound.998308977.097.counter
3) Starting Zope

What's so special about this cound* file?

This is the version we are running:

Zope Version Zope 2.3.0 (source release, python 1.5.2, linux2)
Python Version 1.5.2 (#0, Apr 3 2000, 14:46:48) [GCC 2.95.2 20000313 
(Debian GNU/Linux)]
System Platform linux2
