Hi Christian,

If Plone locks up on you, it normally means there's a mismatch in the
versions running below it (ie. specific versions of Zope known to have
leaks, wrong Python/Zope combination, Python on BSD without the
HUGE_STACK compile flag, etc).

If you have any problems that you can reproduce (or can connect with
the process described for debugging a spinning Zope[1] if it locks up
and you have the possibility to give us some data about it) - we'd be
happy to help you locate the problem.

In general, Plone hasn't had any significant leaks or lock-up problems
in years - that we know of, at least. :)
