I know these things can cause reboots:

A software watchdog (installs on some distros by default).
A buggy program run as root.
Buggy hardware.

You could try killing all the programs you don't need and avoid running
anything you don't need to as root, such as your compiler.  If it still
reboots, and you can't blame hardware, then I'm stumped.
