I know this isn't very helpful, but have you tried switching to using
apache (or preferably nginx) to reverse-proxy through to starman,
rather than using FastCGI? I think that's the current "best practice"
and would prove more reliable. At the very least, it provides more
ways to inspect and debug what is going on. If you're out of ideas, it
might be quicker to just give up on fastcgi and move on.
