OK, it may take longer than that to trigger a problem, but it's at least
not a blatantly obvious memory issue. Are you running X when the
system reboots? If so, you may be getting a panic message that you
can't see because of that. Do you have DDB in your kernel config?
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
