Both of you:

Was there anything useful in stderr_path?  The daemomized
process can never output to the terminal, so it had to
log somewhere... There's also strace, but looking at the
Unicorn code I haven't been able to find much (I'm very
sleep deprived right now, though).

@Greg: I got through to /v6lUsuzD finally, can you put some
debug statements around your before_fork hook and print out
the pid path name and whether it exists or not?
