[Mongrel] Mongrel hangs in production. gdb stack included

I am getting hanging Mongrels daily under light volume.

Mongrel Web Server 1.1.4
Apache 2.2 w/mod_proxy
RedHat EL4 2.6.9-5.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Jan 5 19:30:39 EST 2005 i686 i686  
i386 GNU/Linux
ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [i686-linux]
fastthread (1.0.1)
Mysql 5.0.45

The mongrels are hanging with 0% CPU, their database connections are  
still being reported as open by mysql. Attaching gdb to the processes  
yields similar results (included below). I have no idea about what the  
next steps are in figuring out what is going on -- short of upgrading  
to ruby 1.8.6!

Help and pointers are much appreciated.
