In another post you wrote:

Is that a temporary solution?  You don't have time to find the cause,
but you feel confident that if you removed some irrelevant part of 
the app the problem will go into hiding, and you care only about
one thing: preventing it from happening.  Problem solved. :-)

(I'm sure the real solution is to find the time to narrow down
the list of possible causes, because it seems very unlikely this
group will be able to solve your problem without more legwork 
on your part.  I know that doesn't sound helpful: sorry.)
