Hi Patrick,

I had very similar problems to what you're describing, but I'm afraid I 
still don't know exactly what caused them to cease. But my dispatch.fcgi 
shebang is "#!/usr/bin/env ruby"

Try switching between development and production mode. (variable at the 
top of /config/environment.rb)

Also, be sure to dump the appropriate schema from /db into your 
database. If it can't find its tables, it seems to fail without warning.

Just remember, "Typo could not be reached" is a catch-all for 500s... 
could really be anything.
