'Sleep' means the connection is idle, waiting for a query.  You have a 
connection that has been idle, waiting for a query, for 9210 seconds -- that's 
about 2:30:00.  Is your website running a query and then getting into an 
infinite loop on the result, or do you expect a connection to be held open this 
long due to connection pooling or for some other reason?  If your application 
closes its connections after rendering the page, you shouldn't be seeing that 
unless there's a connection pool.  You also have a connection that just finished 
a query and has been idle for 0 seconds.  That may or may not mean anything... 
you know the code.  But it doesn't look like anything is wrong with MySQL, so 
you're probably on the wrong list and need to address it with Zope or whoever 
else is responsible (sorry, I don't know much about the technologies you're using).
