I've encountered a similar problem which I could not understand for now:
I've a Zope product using a regular python package. The problem is that
the same kind of TypeError is raised _in the python package_, where no
class knows anything about ExtensionClass (I mean there is no
ExtensionClass.Base in the classes hierarchy) !
I can't find this documented anywhere. Does someone ever encountered
such a problem ?
Or does someone could affirm that this is impossible, and the product
is doing something nasty ?
Using the same trick as Dieter explained fixes the problem, but I really
don't feel good to have to do this in an external product.
