We did a lot of SWAP testing before releasing it in IT-2006 and this
kind of behavior would not escape us. Though memory cards with 1GB were
just starting to appear at that time. If you could reproduce it on a
stock IT-2006 then we would be happy to hear from you in bugzilla.

Another possible cause could be some external app. Especially 3rd party
applets are frequent problem, because they are written specially for
this platform making the code immature and they are more difficult to
profile and debug properly. If an applet crashes the device reboots.
