This does not sound familiar to us. Usually, unexplained crashes are related to out of memory situations, but your caches did not seem to be the same size at the point of crash. However, if you can keep an eye on memory use (perhaps with some graphs), that might provide some clues for the future.

Please post again if you see more crashes!
