Depends on what you need to debug. The usual way is to watch the logs 
and the tracebacks, and whatever symptoms are occuring. Use your gut, 
experience, the source, and the algorithm-prover in your head. If you 
want to get a little deeper, you can use good old printlining, both in 
the Zope core and in your own products. If it is a security problem or 
an FTP problem, there are products to give you more information on 
what's happening: search the lists, they come up often.

I'm not familiar with any IDEs or debugging tools -- not that there 
aren't any: I just don't use 'em. If you really want to do so, I'm sure 
you can setup up something like this with regular Python tools and use 
breakpoints or stepthrough or whatnot.
