We (Planio) have seen several random crashes when using custom fields and have narrowed the problem to the usage of super to access attribute setters and getters in ActiveRecord models. According the the ActiveRecord docs, the preferred way to set and get a value from within a custom setter and getter is to use read_attribute and write_attribute.
