Oh, sorry, I should have mentioned.  This seems to be an issue with the 
machine/power supply.  For a while pony was crashing in this way about 
once a day.  I cleaned the machine, replaced a few parts, but the 
mainboard and power supply are kinda crap.

I have most of the parts to build a whole new pony box, I just haven't had 
time to set it up.
