I am testing LS on a VPS running RH9. It is not beng accessed by more than 3 people. Probably none of them concurrently. When I restart the server I have 2 ruby instances. In the 6 or so hours since I restarted this morning, I now have 16 ruby instances. Eventually I end up with about 25 - 30 of them and the Rails application stops responding. UPDATE: 2 hours later - Now up to 22 ruby instances. Any idea what might be going on here?
