is stable stable yet?

My machine has been rebooting silently (no panic or anything) every 24-36 hours since 
about two weeks ago.  It wasn't doing that before then. 

I'm waiting to see if anything surfaces, but I may go straight to 5.1 to see if that solves the 
problem.  I'm tracking -STABLE right now as well.  For whatever reason, I can't seem to 
figure out what's causing the problem.  I can't get a dump because my SWAP is too small 
(just upgraded the RAM to handle application issues), but will try to get *some* diagnostics 
over the weekend.  Nothing to work with right now though, no odd behavior, no syslog 
messages... not even a PANIC sent to my syslog servers across the network.  Just a (fairly 
sudden and rapid) straight reboot as if the power flashed (which it didn't -- other machines 
are not having problems).  It appears that a VERY few other people are having similar issues 
dating back to a few weeks ago as well, so we'll see.  I don't have a proliant though, and you 
will most likely not experience what I am, but I figured its worth mentioning.
