After a few days of it being basically normal, I noticed that every morning When I would come down and take it off the touchstone, it was rebooted.
I could tell by some of top bar stuff being reset. After poking about a bit [thanks jhoff80] I wa able to ascertain it was the backup failing. Tried a manual update and it would hang until I was getting messages about out of memory and it would reboot.
I turned backup off and deleted the old backup information. Turned it back on and it is not able to complete a backup normally.
For the reading public, reboot, turn off backup, reboot again, turn backup back on. Make backup.
Since I have two devices on my profile I tried a manual backup on my touchpad. It also failed, but was quite graceful about it, i.e. it didn't crash, just came back with a message "backup failed". So I repeated the process on the TP and now it works too.
So .... if you have occasion to fight these same things, this handled it for me.
[irony] I got a call today that updating my info at my "alma mater" I was automatically entered in a contest. I won, first prize, an Ipad 2. I guess I am going to get to compare the TP to an Ipad.[/irony]
