RELATIVELY easy. It happens about once a day or more often; but it 
requires someone to press Reset.

Thanks a lot, I've added invariants and witness; if it won't yield any 
information, I'll try more.

So far, this cursed thing is working with some load for 2 hours, that's 
much. It does NOT, surely NOT try to tunnel tunnelled traffic; any 
serialconsole setup is useless since it is also a main gateway. If it 
dies, nothing but physical access can help.
