I'm curious that you're using a -ctl command (zopectl, right?).

If you upgrade grokproject you should get a project that includes 
'paster' to start up Grok. We're moving to that as it's an emerging 
standard to manage server processes in the Python world.

See the updated tutorial on grok.zope.org or see here:


Did you update grokproject and explicitly asked it to create a zopectl 
using --zopectl? Or did you not upgrade grokproject. I think both signal 
potential problems.
