Ok, it happened again.

I noticed that a new firmware version has just been checked in so I updated from
CVS and power-cycled my SB. It came back up and I updated the firmware.

Now, I don't know if this is normal but after about 10 secos trying to connect
to my wireless network it rebooted itself. When it restarted it connected to the
same network within a second or two.

I'm now listening to the same album with firwamre version 37.

Again, I'll report back if it dies again.

Is there any useful logging I could switch on?

Robin,

Firmware v.37 *only* addresses a problem in the static IP entry menu.

There is a server fix in CVS as of 30 minutes ago which fixes a problem
where the control connection would die if the server failed to open an
audio file for streaming. That probably explains what you saw.

Did you see this behavior in the middle of a track, or while going from
one track to the next? In the latter case it should be fixed. If that's
not it, then we need to investigate further.
