Are you deploying to a shared host such as Dreamhost?

I can't back it up with any proof, but if you are, my guess is that
during deployment, you are hitting CPU or memory usage limits and a
process watcher on the shared host is killing your compilation

I've had some success in this case by manually uploading the
precompiled assets the first time only. From their on, the
assets:precompile task shouldn't be recompile assets that haven't
changed... so that might save you some CPU/memory, perhaps enough that
your deployment will resume normal functionality.

used from Capistrano?
