routing issues in controller module

I'm having problems with the routing of requests on my production
server, running mongrel_cluster with apache. The problem does not
happen on my local mongrel test server. Here's an example of what's
happening:

I have two controllers, AccountController and
Admin::AccountController, each with a separate login action. When I
navigate to mysite.com/admin/account/login, sometimes it returns the
correct login page, stored in app/views/admin/account/login.rhtml, and
sometimes it shows the view from the other AccountController, located
in app/views/account/login.rhtml. It does not switch with any apparent
regular pattern, almost as though it's confused which one I'm
requesting.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Guessing at the problem I would say that your backend Mongrel processes are actually serving up two different versions of the application. E.g. you changed the app while it was running but didn't shut down all the Mongrel processes before bringing the app back up so some are still serving up the old app. Or you made a change without bringing any of them down but one processes died which was brought back up somehow and so it's serving the new version.

Thanks! I think that was the problem - capistrano was not properly
restarting the mongrel processes during the deploy task.
