I had this happen constantly, until I fully power cycled the machine.

From what I can tell, coming up from a cold state makes both of my
dual boxes work fairly reliably, but if I reboot it from windows or
from a non-smp kernel things are unstable, and I either get immediate
reboots when going multiuser (on the dual cellery box) or a crash
during the multiuser startup scripts (on my dual Athelon XP box)
