I am running a dedicated server on a Windows Server 2003 VPS. I am running with -batchmode and -nographics enabled. It runs fine for a while, but after a few minutes with multiple people on the server I get a random crash. I can't seem to determine what exactly is the root cause of the crash and the error log doesn't seem to be much help either.
The only thing I can see that doesn't seem right is 'Read from location 00000000 caused an access violation.' which would seem like I am referencing a null reference, but without a readable stack trace, trying to drill this down would be impossible. This crash has never once happened on my mac, even when running with batchmode on my mac.
Is there a way to convert the following to something readable?
Unity Player [version: Unity 3.1.0f3_54715]
WindowsStandalone.exe caused an Access Violation (0xc0000005) in module WindowsStandalone.exe at 0023:005175d0.

I encountered the same problem as you earlier. In our case, we had included a camera in our server scene on accident. Setting the -batchmode flag with a camera in the scene always caused our win32 server to crash (we've only used win32, no idea if this crashes on mac, or some other *nix variant). Our server crashed immediately on run though, we never got to a point when players could spawn. Are you spawning a camera somewhere in the server code?
Hope that helps,
