Strange reboot

Hello all,
seems something strange happens with at least 1.3.17 (I'll try 1.3.18
today). The command
# strace touch xx
reboots my system without a (logged) warning or OOPS. This happens as
root or normal user. I don't want to spread this in the news groups before
it is fixed. Could you please verify this observation?
The kernel is plain 1.3.17-ELF with gcc 2.7.0 -O6 -fexpensive-optimizations.
Best regards
