Well, I believe the problem was overheating protection kicking in.  The 
back fan on the computer was jammed and no longer spinning (and boy was 
that fan hot).  The fan's was connected to one of the motherboard's fan 
power pins.  I replaced that tinny fan, and I haven't had any reboot 
problems.

I assume that this is just the CPU overheating protection that is listed 
in the BIOS, but my assumption is that it would cause an immediate hard 
power off.  Why was I getting shutdown listings in the message log?

Weird.
