I discovered it's not the db_clean.php script. It stopped scoring last night at midnight. This morning I changed the cron to run db_clean.php at 8:00 AM and rebooted the machine. Checking it after 8 it was still scoring the messages appropriately and not timing out.
There must be some other task that is running at midnight that is causing this.
If it makes any difference, I discovered that Bind is not running. However, I have no idea if it was running or not before this problem started.
Any help would be appreciated.
