Nothing definite here, but this raises memories of a discussion I had
with a friend last wee-end :
He got bit by problems with a pretty busy cvs server, and tracked it
down to a cvs server bug related to memory not being properly deallocated.
If it is not too impractical for you to shut down your cvs server, you
may want to try and see if you still experience reboots when you do
a build.

Just a random suggestion, HTH,
