Because you use a persistent object in a way you should not...

A persistent object has a hidden reference to the connection
which loaded the object from the storage ("_p_jar").
The connection is closed when the request finished.
Therefore, you must not use a persistent object outside the request
that loaded it. Apparently, you do just that.

Prominent examples for such wrong-doing are:

  *  storing persistent objects in a cache (other than the connection's
     own ZODB cache)

  *  passing a persistent object to a separate thread.
