Looking for a pattern...

...but I can't find one. POPFile seems to just die randomly. After it kept doing that for longer than I would've liked, I decided to start keeping a log of when and how it dies.

In the graph behind the cut, each bar of black represents time when POPFile was running (against a timeline ticked by days), with any associated errors written to the right. I can't see any pattern to the types of errors given, nor to the timing of the errors.

Nobody in the POPFile forums has been able to figure this one out. But a user in a general Linux forum suggested that the problem was related to BerkeleyDB, which was just introduced in the latest versions of POPFile.
