After looking at the logs, it looks pretty bad:

[Wed, 04 Aug 2010 22:57:28 GMT] [info] [<0.12883.0>] - - 'GET'

[Wed, 04 Aug 2010 22:57:52 GMT] [error] [emulator] Error in process
<0.12957.0> with exit value: {badarg,[{erlang,binary_to_term,[<<1885695232

Anyone know where to start?

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 server with couchdb 1.0 installed from source. I
have made sure the xulrunner settings are correct.
