It isn't, but this was the problem:

It took 15 seconds to open the database, so I thought that I shouldn't
be recreating the database and should be refreshing it. There is
nothing in the docs that says that the right behaviour is to recreate

However, I then put some debug statements around it (I know, I know, I
could have used profiling) to find out exactly what was taking 15
seconds. Turned out there was some rubbish in the db that shouldn't
have been there. I got rid of it, and now it doesn't take 15 seconds to
recreate the database.

So- I am now recreating the db, and my problem is solved.

Thanks for that- it's been hard to track down information on ZODB.
