It happened again last night (at almost exactly midnight). Several
failures seem to have coincided with crontab jobs and I have never had
the system crash while I was logged on the the system directly. Either I
was logged in over the net or was not logged in at all.
Due to the holiday (in the US), is did not have an opportunity to do
anything other then reboot it. I hope to have time to connect a laptop
to the console so I can record everything that happens to submit.
This si clearly not a common problem. What hardware do you have? Mine is
an Athlon64-4400+ on an MSI mobo with 1GB of RAM.
