View as plain text  
When we first examined our server logs, we saw the same..  in our case
(again) it was only when we slowed down and examined the timestamps on
the start/stop messages that we realized that the server was
restarting at unexpected intervals.  Over the course of our
development, we came across this issue a couple of times..  the
problem was never found to be on the clint or have anything to do with
nefarious sql being executed..  we found binary data issues, build
issues (how did you get your binaries?  pre-compiled from the archive
or build your own? and for what OS?) and server config problems..
When you do find the cause let me know; I"m thinking of starting a
collection :-)
