Standard questions come to mind:
 - What do your logs say?
 - Are you running anything semi-dangerous like rmagick or older
versions of acts_as_ferret?
 - Are you using Ruby based log rotation?

BTW, maybe we could put up solutions to common issues into a page on
mongrel.rubyforge.org? I don't see one on
