 Both machines were running Zope 2.5.1 installed from RPMS. The same
products were installed on both.

 Hmm. So, products like Gadfly won't export their databases etc ? I'll
have to copy those from /var/zope/var/gadfly myself ?

 Assuming that everything else is equal, what would an error like;

" One or more items referred to in the clipboard data was not found. The
  item may have been moved or deleted after you copied it. "

 mean ? could it be that the objects expected themselves to be in /, but
were actually restored to /Zope ?
