This is basically a copy of my question here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5383625/delayed-job-returns-syntax-error-for-process-daemon-and-rake-task

However, it seemed appropriate to re-post the question in effort to generate some form of backlog for delayed_job.

Started to have an issue this afternoon with the delayed_job process, found that the daemons were dead and restarted them...

Roughly 40 minutes later the process died again @ 86 jobs. Tried to start the daemons again and found they quietly died immediately after I start them. Checking the log I found:

s603021@ec2-184-72-244-232:~/rails/gamestreamer/current$ tail -F log/delayed_job.log 
  SQL (0.7ms)   SET NAMES 'utf8'

#<ArgumentError: syntax error on line 1588, col 10: `'>

I went ahead and did some digging, a lot of people used to find the daemon gem for delayed_jobs was bugged, and the rake task still worked; this was not the case for me however:

s603021@ec2-184-72-244-232:~/rails/gamestreamer/current$ RAILS_ENV=gs1_development rake jobs:work --trace

Now I'm simply not sure what could possibly be the problem, any advice on how to get more information(or a more verbose exception) would be awesome. If anyone can help me to solve it, that'd be unbelievable. Thanks in advance--

This is DJ choking while attempting to deserialize the "handler" attribute of the job record. As you an see in the last line, it is a YAML exception thrown during YAML.load().
