writev doesn't seem to have done the trick -- lighttpd went down and
took all the other services (ssh, etc) with it, even after a reboot

I'm going to go with the hunch from a thread I found[1] that it could
potentially be due to kqueue and switch to writev+poll once the
machine comes back up. And then I'm turning my phone off for the
night, lmao.

Then try to convince the actual sysadmin to switch to Nginx in the
morning, because this is only helping to deepen my grudge against

Thanks again for the help guys; I'll post another message in the
morning if writev+poll crashes too (in which case faulty hardware
would enter my list of suspicions).
