[Backgroundrb-devel] actionmailer the background

I have bdrb successfully set up and running in a local project.  It's  
doing two things:

1) processing large csv files and using ActiveRecord to insert
2) sending large batches of emails using ActionMailer

In development both work well.  I see my ActionMailer emails in the  
log (though it's the development.log -- odd?)

On the production server csv processing works well, but sending emails  
throws errors in the background.

Note:  I can successfully upload a csv, then fail trying to send  
emails, then successfully upload another csv file.  Also, sending  
emails works in production when used outside of backgroundrb.

backgroundrb_debug.log reports this

PGError: no connection to the server
: SELECT a.attname, format_type(a.atttypid, a.atttypmod), d.adsrc,  
FROM pg_attribute a LEFT JOIN pg_attrdef d
ON a.attrelid = d.adrelid AND a.attnum = d.adnum
WHERE a.attrelid = 'sandboxed_libraries'::regclass
AND a.attnum > 0 AND NOT a.attisdropped
ORDER BY a.attnum

Can't seem to turn anything up after a day of googling.
Does this ring any bells?
