That is rather strange, you may want to re-test this with the new beta
we just released. I've updated the vanilla "nv" drivers to the latest,
and also we have a bigger selection of official "nvidia" drivers to
choose from as well. Maybe its a bug in 100.14.11 drivers, or 9746 or

Let me know what happens when you retest with that version, it shouldn't
be rebooting at random like that anymore.

Also, if you suspect is has something to do with beryl, you can remove
the /PCBSD/conf/beryl-enable file to prevent even the manager from
loading. That should ensure that the only thing running is X and KDE.
