Symptoms

You will see exceptions printed in the logs, but there is no stack trace available. For example, see the following log entries:

<D>, "Jul 1, 2010 12:20:36 PM", Engine, Main, <62> ET(76), "Instance '/CustomFulfillment#Default-1.4/1363271/28' unlocked."
<I>, "Jul 1, 2010 12:20:36 PM", Engine, Main, <62> ET(76), "Process read unlock: '/CustomFulfillment#Default-1.4' [HasWriteLock=false, ReadLockers=2]"
<D>, "Jul 1, 2010 12:20:36 PM", Engine, Main, <62> ET(76), "Instance '/CustomFulfillment#Default-1.4/1363271/28' locked."

<D>, "Jul 1, 2010 12:20:36 PM", Engine, Main, <62> ET(76), "Instance '/CustomFulfillment#Default-1.4/1363271/28' unlocked."
<S>, "Jul 1, 2010 12:20:36 PM", Engine, Main, <62> ET(76), "An unexpected error occurred while running an automatic item.

"
<D>, "Jul 1, 2010 12:20:36 PM", Engine, Main, <62> ET(76), "Retrying automatic item ''46317036' ACTIVITY_EXPIRATION (1361,1363271,28)'."
