Bizarre Apache/PHP issue.

I have a really
weird Apache/PHP problem. Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server, fairly typical webhosting setup. One of our sites returns 404s randomly through the day, typically late at night, but sometimes in the morning. It'll do this for an hour or two and then start working all on it's own. The other sites are fine.
If it helps, this site is a CakePHP deal. I'm 99% sure it's not anything in cron because although it typically happens around 1am-4am, the times are very inconsistent. Once it happened for 15 minutes in the middle of the day, sometimes it happens around 7am for about an hour. In a browser, it will load part of the page, then 404.
The apache log looks like this:
[28/Jan/2011:02:38:58 -0700] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 404 9444 "-" "mon.d/http.monitor"
The few times I've caught it while it's happening, load does not seem to be very high, maybe a little higher than average, but nothing above 1.0.
I'm pretty stumped here, any help would be appreciated.
