A question: do you always run the same software in the test? mprime is
used to stress-test a computer so why run the other apps. like firefox
and such.

I might just be browsing something or other, or setting something up
whatever. No particular purpose.

Reason for asking is that you may be running out of RAM because some
app other than mprime has a problem with handing back RAM - firefox
prior to v3 has this problem I believe.

I would expect to see the kernel complain or hang or something, not just
reboot. Or it might kill off whatever is using up the RAM.
