If all your hardware checks out OK, I would suggest upgrading to the
very latest Rivendell version.
Also (a tip received from Robert) do an auto repair of the database
using the command (as root) mysqlcheck -A --auto-repair. We run it as
a crontab every night with 7 19 * * * mysqlcheck -A --auto-repair
