Site Search on Front End Errors

I am using 1.1.6 with the Default theme.  When I search my site on the front end for a search string (simple text) I get this error:

“SQLSTATE[08S01]: Communication link failure: 1053 Server shutdown in progress”

and then a list of 29 line-items of problems like this:
#0 /home/judaica/public_html/lib/Zend/Db/Statement.php(283): Zend_Db_Statement_Pdo->_execute(Array)
#1 /home/judaica/public_html/lib/Zend/Db/Adapter/Abstract.php(406): Zend_Db_Statement->execute(Array)
#2 /home/judaica/public_html/lib/Zend/Db/Adapter/Pdo/Abstract.php(206): Zend_Db_Adapter_Abstract->query(’select count(DI...’, Array)
#3 /home/judaica/public_html/lib/Varien/Db/Adapter/Pdo/Mysql.php(199): Zend_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Abstract->query(’select count(DI...’, Array)
#4 /home/judaica/public_html/lib/Zend/Db/Adapter/Abstract.php(711): Varien_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Mysql->query(’select count(DI...’, Array)

I’ve cleared the cache, etc. Any ideas what could be causing this catastrophic error?
