(1) have you seen this problem again with a more recent NetBSD?
(2) in order to figure out what might have happened we'll need more
    information. There's no plausible way bootpd itself could reboot
    a system; best guess is that either it did something bad to one of
    the network drivers, or send a bogus address to the other machine
    which then sent packets that caused a crash. When you say the
    "reboot message", do you mean a message from reboot(8) or shutdown(8),
    or just the first kernel messages from a fresh boot?
