We've had this here too, to the point where it was becoming a bit of  
a crisis.  I've seen several suggested remedies:

1. make sure your log rotation is done outside mongrel, not using  
ruby's log rotation features
2. make sure your rails app doesn't ever try to write to stdout or  
3. avoid pstore-based sessions
4. disable http keepalive on the apache frontend

We tried all of these and it looks like #4 might have finally done  
the trick.
