OK, so we have a potential bug that's fairly difficult to reproduce.
What concrete steps can we take here to turn this into something we
can chew on?

Dan: do you already have the infrastructure in place to automatically
log the Darcs errors?

I wonder if maybe setting up some relatively simple (and shareable)
repository and having your cron-based infrastructure run on *that*
could help us reproduce the problem.
