the 21 aug nightly seems to have cured the crashes i was seeing (no
doubt posting such a comment will still break it ;)

if there's a problem with 'bad' tracks, shouldn't the server be able to
handle them without breaking?

I took all the music out of the library that I had added this year and
so far so good. I did notice that the server is faster now, so I may
have had a bad track as Jason suggested.
Thanks Jason!

Any suggestions
of how I can get morestability/performance? preferably with
Linux but I'll
gladly takeWindows suggestions too

If it was stable for a long time, it is probably something you
added to
your library that's causing the crash. I'd remove half the files
added since the crashing began. If it is still stable, keep
moving files
back in until you find the culprit.
