I'm not entirely sure how feasible this is, but can you have an output
filter or valve catch (or at least note) the 500 status?  If so, then
maybe it could log an error to the database.  Since you said your status
page was able to hit the database even after the app crashed, you should
hopefully be able to retrieve the error indication.
