You should make a debug level log for us, that lasts for 10 minutes or
so, and post that on some url somewhere.
It sounds like a bug, but it sure could be a lot of them based on

In the mean time, can other people check to see if they're getting
this behavior? I would expect that clients might also be
seeing it.
