SUMMARY: Oracle causing machine reboot?

2 weeks in a row now that the machine hasn't rebooted after an export.
We've had no problems and supposedly haven't changed a thing. I say
supposedly because our dba doesn't remember if he modified the script
after all this started happening. So, basically, I have no solution
because the problem seems to have gone away as quickly as it appeared.

But if I had to guess I would say John hit it dead on about the
compression utility causing a panic with large archives.
