Also with Rainbows! I see a good number of:
2010/12/15 21:37:42 [error] 2104#0: *174851 sendfile() failed (32:
Broken pipe) while sending request to upstream,
2010/12/15 21:37:55 [error] 2090#0: *175527 readv() failed (104:
Connection reset by peer) while reading upstream,

on our photo upload page. These errors did not occur with Unicorn, and
the Unicorn logs said nothing about a failure either.
