[Rack] minotaur needs rebooted sometimes to fix gate

if anyone has a moment to look at minotaur, something gets messed up once 
in a while where baron still works (accepts valid codes from door keypads 
and returns happy noise) but for some reason the gate doesn't get 
activated.

rebooting minotaur fixes this (soft reboot from the commandline)

i don't know what it is but i'm glad it's so easy to fix.  thing is, it 
takes a day or two for me to find out that it's not working and to log in 
and reboot minotaur.  Surely there's a better way?

the next time i hear about it happening, are there any tests i should run 
before rebooting, to increase our awareness of what the problem is?

thanks all
