File_column and 500 errors

Rails community,

I have been trying to diagnose some sporadic “Rails application failed
to
start properly” errors, and this is what I have been able to determine.
I
am running on a shared server on site5, apache w/ FastCGI. When my
application is running, it is only using 1 dispatch.fcgi process until I
upload a picture with file_column plugin. At that point, between 3-4
more
dispatch.fcgi processes are spawned and the 500 errors are being caused
as
these extra processes slowly die off. So, now my couple of questions.
What
causes these additional processes to be spawned? What causes the
process to
die? Has anyone been able to solve this problem? Thanks for any help!
