Chris, the underlying code for ZopeDA's hasn't changed for years so it 
shouldn't make much difference what version of Zope he is running. There 
may, of course, be other reasons for running a more recent release.

This still should not be causing this problem. Jamie, you should be talking 
to the DBA or looking at the DB side of things. Is the DB running on the 
same machine as Zope or on the network? What are connection times set to? 
It might simply be that MySQL is running out of connections although this 
usually means that the whole machine runs slow.
