occasional blank pages problem with chatterblock

I'm running the latest geeklog on my site (sqrville.org) with plugins forum, blockmenu, filemgmt, chatterblock, and of course staticpages and spamx. Late one night I posted some new images in my gallery and decided to link to them in the chatterblock. The link was quite long, and the result was that when I submitted the message I ended up on a blank page. Try as I might, the site would not come back. I immediately came here and looked all through the forums and FAQ for possible solutions, and eventually found someone's suggestion to turn off the plugins via editing the database entries in the gl_plugins table. I did this and voila, the site came back. Strangely, that particular chatterblock entry did not make it into the database at all. I reenabled the plugins and the site still worked. The next morning, I found that my site didn't work again, so I disabled the plugins, it worked, I reenabled them again and it kept working.

So this continues to happen to me about once or twice a day - the site will serve a blank page, with no HTML content at all. I don't get PHP errors despite having them turned on. I have tried telnetting to the server and requesting the page when it's like this and I get part of a header, then it gives up. I figured it was something about the chatterblock, since that seemed to trigger it, so I upgraded it to the latest version on portalparts.com. This didn't help either, the problem persists. I haven't changed anything else on the site for a long while except to add some more pictures to my gallery, which doesn't seem cause any problems.

Any ideas? Can someone help me

this continues, yet i'm stumped. it seems i have to disable a few plugins at once, then refresh the site, then re-enable them to get it to work. this only happens maybe once or twice a day. very strange...

Try disabling the chatterblock for several days to see whether this problem goes away. If doesn't, then do the same thing for each plugin one at a time until you can narrow down which one is the cause.
