[Zope] setting Z_DEBUG_MODE

Z_DEBUG_MODE likely has no effect any more (or at least it's
indeterminate whether it does or not). All Zope 2.7 configuration is
done via the instance's zope.conf file. You should edit that file and
change a key. The key you're looking for is "debug-mode" and it should
be set to "on". But if you've not changed anything in that file, it is
set to "on" by default, so that's probably not your problem.
Lots has happened to the way Zope reports errors since the Zope Bible
print edition was published (likely... 2 or more years ago?). Long ago,
Zope used to put traceback information in the error page itself, but
this was deemed to be inappropriate due to security and other concerns.
There is now an error_log object in the Zope root directory which has
responsibility for keeping track of traceback reporting. By default,
this object is configured to allow you to view traceback information by
visiting its Zope management interface tab. It can optionally send
output to the Zope event log file (see the option for "copy errors to
event log" in the error_log management interface).
This isn't very convenient, lots of the time, because you need to click
around in the ZMI to see where the error was. What I do is tell the
error_log to copy tracebacks to the event log, then I'll configure Zope
to send the error log to stdout, by editing the <eventlog> section in my
zope.conf file to look like this:
This tells Zope to send the event log both to the event.log file and to
stdout. Then I start zope via runzope without backgrounding it.
Whenver there's an error, the traceback gets sent to the console on
which I started runzope.
