That's fucking weird.  There's definitely a correlation, but not sure
how mongrel would cause that.  It doesn't touch the logs or logger or
anything and leaves that all to Rails.

How much you want to bet that hack job rails-core did on the fucking
Logger class causes this?  Not sure how.  That's just weird.

Next would to see if it happens in jruby since they use a different IO

Anyway, looks like syslogger is the way to go for production.
