I had the tester restart the reboot-loop, and so far it's done ~1200
runs with no problem.  I'm thinking now that either I hosed something
up with the build initially, or else the tester didn't flash it
correctly.  1200 runs isn't enough to be conclusive, but it's a lot
better than 88.  I'll let you know when we have something more
