Yet another "me too". Using ab and apache, using localhost w/o keepalives,
10000 transfers with 10 clients, my ASUS Super socket 7 board spontaneously
reboots as well. The only clue that impending doom was about to occur is the
occasional "out of socket buffers" message that ab returns when it fails. If I
then restart the ab, it reboots, bypassing ddb. netstat -m has not shown
anything out of the ordinary. I haven't filed a bug report yet because I've
been hoping that you[kml] or I might find something more concrete to report.

In short, I don't think that it's hardware.
