Since this is a Gentoo list and not a CentOS list, email me off-list for
further discussion. But what you describe sounds like the random
glitches any "24x7" web server will have, regardless of which distro you
use. It's why Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a profitable *product* and Red
Hat Certified Engineers exist, and why until other distros have that
kind of muscle, they won't be seriously considered in such migrations.

CentOS is kind of a special case. Their aim is to produce an RHEL
"clone" -- rebuild is the correct term. For the most part, they are only
a day or so behind RHEL if that. So many if not most of the issues you
ran into would have also happened on RHEL.
