The box died again, tonight (about 3am). Zero load whatsoever, no
console messages, neither hangcheck nor softdog noticed anything, just
sudden death. Beats me :( My bets are on a broken CPU. We just got a
replacement chip and we'll install it next week.

The owner of the machine (it'll go production soon) did some load
tests and reportedly managed to cause a loadavg spike of 160, but as I
was also told, was impressed with the machine's responsivity.

I'm glad I can help.

I truly wish I'll be able to provide only positive feedback :)
