I do not know :) Sorry.  It might be dbus daemon itself, for example :)

Basically, there is a daemon called 'dsme', which performs the
'watching' function.  If you look into /etc/init.d directory and check
what applications/daemons are started with 'dsmetool -r ...', you'll
find a list of "important" applications.  Those who use dbus (beside
dbus daemon itself) are the one that might cause the reboot.

Impressions are sometimes wrong though :)
