I've discovered a similar problem with N800/OS2007 but it really does
spontaneously reboot. Normally it's charging in my study overnight, so
it would be inaudible from elsewhere, but I was visiting with the 'rents
last week and it was in the bedroom...suddenly at just after midnight I
heard the diddle-diddle-ding-ding-ding of a Nokia startup. I went to
check, and it had rebooted, and then once the home screen had loaded, it
rebooted a second time. After that it stayed stable until the next
night. There is some weirdness going on here. BTW it was connected to my
Wiflyer (pocket AP) wifi, but the LAN (dialup) was disconnected from the
Internet at the time.
