Rails Spawn plugin under nginx

Every client we have using spawn at engine yard has problems.  The  
short answer is just don't do it.  You need to use real queueing a la  
bj, backgroundrb, starling, etc.  I'm pretty sure that the upstream  
gets confused with all the fd closing/reopening/reconnecting.
