This is obviously a bug.  I have had the exact same problem, and I did the
exact same things to get it working again.  The odd thing is that I'm
running two cores on the exact same server.  The problem is chronic on the
smaller core, but the larger core is unaffected.  I think the smaller one
gets more connections though.  I tried running the small core on a few OS's.
All the machines have the same problem.
