Debian Zope is and has been a catastrophe. For this reason, pkg-zope
exists on alioth, which I am going to officially start at debconf5.
If zope gets mentioned in the release notes, you should also say
that it's really just preferable at the moment to run Zope from
/usr/local! If I had my ways, I'd get zope* removed from Debian
sarge. :)

In the meantime, the following patch to debian/zope.config or
/var/lib/dpkg/info/zope.config should fix the problem:

<             db_input medium $PKG/admin-user || true
>             db_input critical $PKG/admin-user || true
<             db_input medium $PKG/admin-password || true
>             db_input critical $PKG/admin-password || true
<                     db_input medium $PKG/admin-password-confirmation || true
>                     db_input critical $PKG/admin-password-confirmation || true

If this warrants a new upload, I can prepare one within minutes...
it's building now...
