Depends on the cause.
Check the console when your system crashes (or if you are in X, try to
provoke it by doing equivalent stuff while not in X). True
"spontaneous reboots" are rare, but are usually caused by failing or
marginal hardware unable to keep up with the demands places upon it.
This would be consistent with it only happening under load.
If you're hitting a bug in FreeBSD, you'll probably see a panic on the
console when it happens. If so, set up kernel debugging as described
in the developers handbook, and proceed from there.
