This looks scary, this initializer must be quite old.

Maybe you need to recompile the code. There shouldn't be obsolete
references in the Seaside code, we regularly run SLint.

Btw, one of the goals of 2.8 is to improve the configuration
framework. Over the time this has become a real mess of properties
that were added to the wrong class, ect. Also it has shown to be a
bottleneck, because the lookup of values can be really slow. If
anybody has ideas (or is willing to contribute code) please go ahead.
