I've been using westhost.com and I can't say enough good things about 
them.  I get a chroot / ssh account, I can compile my own software on 
their servers, I can run long-running processes, and I've seen no 
hiccups at all in the 6 months I've been using them.  They're even 
located in northern Utah.

The only possible downside is you have to pay for two years upfront to 
get the excellent rates they advertise.  However, they have a 30 day 
money back guarantee, and they seem trustworthy.
