We've got a reviewboard installation, which we upgraded to 1.5.5

Rebuilding directory structure
Upgrading from version 1.5.3
Updating database. This may take a while.
Upgrading Review Board from 1.5.3 to 1.5.5

We never had 1.5.3 installed, we went from pre-1.0 svn snapshot
straight to 1.5.5.
After the "rb-site upgrade", things went fine for a little while, and
then I started getting the intermittent message.
By intermittent, I mean that sometimes it appears as the only content
on the page, and sometimes it appears between diff chunks, and
sometimes it doesn't appear at all and reviewboard behaves as normal.
I've looked in the Apache error_log, and all I see are the reviewboard
debugging messages about diff generation. The log directory in my
rb-site root is empty.
Anyone have an idea of what else to try?
