Whatever MySQL does, the system should not reboot. If
everything is cool, but MySQL is at fault, you will see
99% CPU eathen up, hard disks going wild, segfaults and
other nasty things, but not a cold reboot. Looks like
a hardware problem of some kind. Maybe there is an evil
gnome in your server room that pull a prank on you once
in a while by hitting the reset button :) ?
