For something as potentially obnoxious as that, an easily thrown switch 
to enable/disable it. It is NOT in /etc/init.d.

No such critter on this wheezy box.

Now I am puzzled. This  machine just did an unrequested reboot. I have 
gkrellm watching things and I don't see a thing out of line. Temps are 
all 40C or below, voltages are nominal + maybe 5%, stable as always. I 
had to kill several copies of kmail before I found them all, then 
restarted bin/mailwatcher, and it restarted kmail at exactly where it 
was shut down.  One of those things that make you go hummmmm.

Twasn't a power bump, there was no blink to the overhead lights, and 
there is a ups that will run it right past a failure long enough to 
start the 20kw standby. So I have not a clue.
