I banged together a quick script to try to quantify this Dreamhost 500 error problem. Pointing it at my home page, I only got one 500 error in about 1200 requests. That's not bad. However, I see a far higher percentage of 500 errors when I'm composing a new blog posting (in the preview pane). So now I'm wondering if Ruby gets killed off a lot when it's repeatedly running the article filters while composing, but happily serves up cached content all day while serving up content. Just another data point. - Scott

If you're using Typo 2.6 then it uses static page caches and most requests won't touch typo itself. Dreamhost does kill processes sometimes, which annoys me, which is one possible cause of the problem.
