I have seen things like this twice.

In both case, a database adapter was responsible. It tried to connect
to database on an offline host.

This is a bug in Zope's DA implementation. It should not try
to open a connection when it is loaded from ZODB.
You find a bug report in "http://collector.zope.org/Zope".

However, your problem might have a different cause.

I would use my ZopeProfiler product and check where Zope spends
its time. You may need to choose the "realtime timer".
