So, do you have a USB attached HD drive, and presuming as its a server, the ethernet is pretty busy?
We have just found a bug in the ethernet driver which we have a fix for, which is going in to the next rpi-update. It tended to exhibit under these circumstances. Try rpi-update tomorrow and see if it fixes the problem.
Alright. So I tried rpi-update and triggered the crash by running a python script converting a video file using ffmpeg.
I monitored the Pi on VNC and saw the CPU % increased to 100% before freezing. Weird thing is that the Pi has been running the script before without crashing. But the script itself is not the problem since other crashes aren't triggered by that script.
Tomorrow I will try with a clean installation of Raspbian and see
