By now I've got the server started but am experiencing serious problems in stability and get sporadic errors on some pages. Does anyone know if Zope 2.4.0 and Python 2.1.3 has been tested somewhere?! I'll now upgrade to Zope 2.4.4 but expect even more problems from that upgraden. I'll keep you posted if it solves my problem.

Hi Oliver,

Note that Python 2.1.3 includes some checks for things that were broken 
earlier, as such, it will die more frequently until you upgrade your 
Zope 2.4 instance to Zope 2.4.4 and recompile all of your python 
scripts.  The earlier Zope 2.4 releases could generate bad python 
bytecodes when compiling scripts with lots of static structures; if you 
have any of those, you'll probably see Python 2.1.3 aborting when it 
hits them.
