Empty exception: # () nil

We're seeing exceptions from a Rails 3.2 application (on Heroku) that are completely empty:

# () nil

We're using the latest exceptional gem, version 2.0.33.


A light bit of Google-fu yielded nothing definitive other than a issue opened against your PHP library:

And this discussion:

Sounds like it could be an issue around the size of post data from the exception (the parameters, specifically) and Rack default settings. It was suggested in the thread that the client could truncate the data its passing so as to avoid the issue. If that's the case, seems like it's something that the exceptional gem should handle.

However, it's still unclear what the actual issue is. Any ideas?
