Cannot kill infinite loop. please help

an error in my rails code caused the framework to send an infinite
number of SQL calls to the database. I killed the webrick server,
restarted postgres, deleted the /tmp file in my rails application,
deleted the bad code, restarted firefox, restarted the webrick server.

All to no avail.

As soon as I try loading my application, the infinite recursion starts
again.

I can no longer work. This is so bad I can’t tell you how maddening it
is.

any help extremely appreciated.

how do I kill a rails thread that sends the same recursing SQL statement
whenever the webrick server is started?

what are all the files I should look for?

I rebooted by machine running linux Fedora Core, emptied my browser
cache, restarted my browser.

I have removed all the rails code that caused the infinite loop. I
restarted webrick and when I load the application, the endless SQL calls
start again:

Keyword Load (0.004687) SELECT * FROM keywords WHERE (keywords.id =
949) LIMIT 1
Keyword Load (0.004808) SELECT * FROM keywords WHERE (keywords.id =
27) LIMIT 1
Keyword Load (0.004987) SELECT * FROM keywords WHERE (keywords.id =
241) LIMIT 1
Keyword Load (0.004666) SELECT * FROM keywords WHERE (keywords.id =
949) LIMIT 1
Keyword Load (0.005433) SELECT * FROM keywords WHERE (keywords.id =
27) LIMIT 1
Keyword Load (0.005096) SELECT * FROM keywords WHERE (keywords.id =
241) LIMIT 1
Keyword Load (0.004721) SELECT * FROM keywords WHERE (keywords.id =
949) LIMIT 1
Keyword Load (0.004887) SELECT * FROM keywords WHERE (keywords.id =
27) LIMIT 1

I am grateful for any hints. Any.

solved by deleting all records in the database that gave the error…

friday night syndrome. sigh.
