[wp-hackers] getting 500 Internal Server Error

I upgraded my test site to 3.0 and am now regularly getting the HTTP
response '500 Internal Server Error'. This is typically due to a
mis-configured server but I have not made any changes to its
configuration. I am also unable to cause this response except
randomly. Is anyone else seeing this?

My log files do not show any errors related to this. Version information is:
Apache/2.2.14 (FreeBSD) mod_ssl/2.2.14 OpenSSL/0.9.8e DAV/2 PHP/5.3.2
with Suhosin-Patch mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.10.0
