Most people replying, suggested hardware problems when encountering
a "watchdog reset". However, the patch history shows that kernel patches
have been available in the past for this. A current patch ID was sent
in by, along with it's associated bug ID. Possibly
some troublesome software applications cause the watchdog to go off. At any
rate, we have been swapping hardware around for several months now, so we
will probably try this patch, or some related patch.
