I did do a packet capture for analysis.  I have had a look at it but I can 
find nothing out of the ordinary.  A couple others were also going to have a 
look but I have not heard back from them.

Currently I have my m0n0wall reboot every night at 2am - I still had a few 
lock-ups in one evening last week.  From what I could see at the time there 
was a host running Bit Torrent that was creating a lot of connections very 
quickly.  I'm not sure if this had anything to do with the freeze, but I 
have not seen Bit Torrent on my network since then and also have not had any 
freezes.  That said, I also limited the peer-2-peer connections max to 100 
connections.  Again, I have no idea if this is part of the problem, but I'm 
trying anything.
