Look in logs/production.log.  If Rails is working most of the time,  
but failing on some pages, then there will almost certainly be an  
explanation in the logfiles.

I'm not really sure what the point of adding extended_html to the  
main index view is--the point of extended_html is a place to put  
stuff that you don't want to clutter up the main page.  That's pretty  
much all it's used for.  But I can't see why that'd break anything.

No idea.
