I sounds strange....

However, when you are able to access Zope with other browsers, it
does not seem to be a Zope problem (alone).

We use HomeSite (and IE 5.5) routinely and do not the these problems.
What we see, however, is a big need for file descriptors.
We had to set the file descriptor limit for Zope very high.
We also see lots of "sockets of unknown type" opened by
the Zope process and we do not yet understand where they are there.
