restarts my mistake (I have done my homework since I wrote my last email), but 
the reboots seem to be related to ias. The reboot reason is always 32wd_to, 
and no core file is created in /media/mmc1/core_dumps. In lifeguard_restarts, 
ias increases by about 10-20 every day.

They are already disabled.

This is an valuable insight: on internettablettalk [1], somebody reported that 
his tablet restarts about once every 3-4 days, and that the precursor is that 
the touchscreen sounds stop, then after 4-6 seconds, reboot, which leaves him 
time to save his work.

Anyway, I have renamed /usr/bin/ias and killed the process. I will report in a 
few days if ias was the culprit.
