I see your first problem on OS2008 sometimes when an application 
(especially Kagu) is running full-screen, and takes too long to respond. 
   Usually a spontaneous reboot follows shortly afterward.

I think there is a watchdog timer kicking in and rebooting the device in 
the event of a major problem.  Perhaps one of the developers can comment 
on what's happening here, but you are certainly not the only one.  ;-)
