ASP 0147 - 500 Server error

What I have is this:

A script, which uses a VBScript class to retrieve data from the DB using ADO, and uses these returned recordsets to create XML output (instead of HTML). No other ActiveX objects are used in this script, it's pretty basic.
This script can generate 3 different 'xml files' depending on given querystring parameters.

I've got another script which uses the ServerXMLHTTP object to retrieve that XML and displays it on screen.
This retrieves sequentially the 3 possible results from the first script.

The problem:

The XML generating ASP script sometimes generates an  "ASP 0147 - 500 Server error" (<= taken from IIS logfile).
There are no bugs in my script causing errors since I can call the script without errors when I manually use the exact same URL I've used from the second ASP to retrieve the data with XMLHTTP.
Script error would also indicate a linenumber, which is not the case.



What is causing the ASP 0147 Server error ?
The error message itself is very obscure, since it doesn't specify any possible cause of the error.
In most cases script error either come from VBScript (eg. Syntax error), or OLEDB (invalid SQL statements etc), but in this case I don't have a clue what's causing the problem.

Is there a way to find out what exactly is going wrong?

Extract from IIS log:, -, 2/06/2003, 16:51:54, W3SVC1, webserver,, 3600647, 250, 179, 500, 0, GET, /foo/bar/prcchkxml.asp, TxtList=ARTICLE&IdtArticle=1586442000&IdtLanguage=NL|-|ASP_0147|500_Server_Error,
