[Zope] Odd ZCTextIndex behavior

What's the likelyhood that Python is playing silly buggers with type's?  To 
python a bare '451' will generally look like, and be converted to, an 
Integer instead of a string.  If that's not caught and forcibly converted 
properly it could cause something like what you're describing.
