Is there any kind of message being returned to the application from the
crash? or are you saying that the application crash crashes the db server
as well? i.e. that the Guardian restarts happen as a consequence of the app
crashing the server?

Is this a single-box architecture? local connect, etc. Any devices
attached? e.g. instrument interfaces, etc.?

Does the app guard against long-running transactions?

Could be - has anyone tried a backup + restore to a new file (not
overwriting the database) to see whether there are some damaged structures?

These are all shots in the dark. There don't seem to be many clues so far...
