That's a good point- frankly I don't know- maybe the explaination bellow
also fits for this...

Ah now it is ringing: this sound like this:

"Then we'll do the dist-upgrade. Unfortunately Maemo has a very snappish
watchdog that reboots your phone if it thinks it hangs due to a runaway
process. This is almost certainly triggered when doing mayor package
installations with normal process priority. So we'll do the dist-upgrade
wit the lowest priority using the nice command:

nice -n 19 sudo apt-get update
nice -n 19 sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"

I never had this problem but maybe that is yours?
