  What time does it crash?  Do you see anything in the logfile
 suggesting a last access?  

  The main reason I ask is because when I put together the Debian
 package for unstable/sarge I setup a cronjob that would reindex
 and rotate the logfiles.   This could be the cause of your error..

  The server isn't supposed to crash (clearly!) and I've not had
 any credible reports that it does so on a daily basis before.

  Yes .. if you use 'restart' the init script assumes that the server
 is already running, so it tries to lookup the PID to kill it in the
 /var/run/ file - if this is missing then it will not

  In this case run '/etc/init.d/gnump3d start' rather than 'restart'

  Work out why it crashes, then fix that ;)
