Why would nginx 0.7.6 is drop requests randomly

I notice our server is rapidly responding 500 errors for random pages.
Our setup is pretty basic. We are running Nginx 0.7.6 with Unicorn and a
Rails app on a Ubuntu 10.4 server.

What ever the problem, it doesn't seem to happen at the application
level since Unicorn logs don't contain any errors. Next we looked at
Nginx's error logs and there doesn't seem to be any entries. Yes when we
monitor the Nginx's access log we notice rapid 500 error responses on
random pages.

This is really strange since our server isn't under a lot of load. It
uses a 4 core Linode instance and we have 4 Nginx worker processes.

Could someone people point us to the right direction?
