Really funny....

Unfortunately, this means that is will be quite difficult
to find the cause of your problem.

One approach would be to emulate in a pure Python interpreter
what "zopectl debug" would do for us.

You may try:

    bin/zopectl shell # will create a new shell process with the correct environment
    from Zope2.Startup.run import configure
    # this is likely to raise the exception you have earlier reported
    from pdb import pm
    pm() # analyse the exception context
