[Product-Developers] Local utilities - ComponentLookupError

I'm trying to implement a local utility in the manner suggested by Martin 
Aspeli on p 275+ of /Professional Plone Development/.

The control panel stuff works fine - the entries in the configlet persist 
over restarts of the system, and clearly the componentregistry.xml is right, 
because (a) I can see it in portal_setup, and (b) the configlet works.

However, if I try to use the utility in Zope startup code (from 
configure.zcml) I get a ComponentLookupError.

Is there some point in the startup process that I have to wait for before I 
can use local utilities?  Or do I have to physically do something to set the 
"Site" before I can use local utilities in startup code?
