These systems are installed in schools, so they're only being used from 
roughly 7am to 4pm.  This problem is happening within that window, while 
it is being used during the day.  We have never seen it lock up in this 
way over night.

To the extent that 5500 hits per day is "load", yes.  :)

There seems to be a loose correlation between the problem and load: this 
site is one of the heaviest users.  We have heavier users, though, that 
aren't seeing the problem.

We don't notice a busied out CPU, if that's what you mean.  And, I 
wouldn't think anything is truly deadlocked, since all it takes is 
removing the ASP state directory to fix the problem.

No, but then we send a lot of stuff to error_log ourselves.  And, we 
don't have Debug turned up.  Should we?

Hmmm...  Would having the files help?
