A workaround that worked for me:

copy the contents of the folder :

F:\Python22\Lib\site-packages (wherever your installation is)
 as related to the MySQL Python binary which is the directory MySQLdb 
and about six source files into the

f:\<zope site name>\bin\lib

and restart Zope. worked fine for me.
