[Mongrel] Clustering - Avoiding "dead" processes?

I have a very similar stack to you and I noticed Mongrels dying once  
or twice a day. Now I'm using Monit to watch each individual Mongrel  
in the cluster and I've noticed that each Mongrel gets restarted once  
a day on average. I haven't got around to figure out the exact cause  
yet, but with Monit there is always a full cluster available.
