Just had my personal most bizarre server reboot.

I'm told a service is down, so I attempt to SSH in. I get a pipe breakage error after some time, so I go to the KVM VNC and login, where the tty stalls for a bit... and then resets back to login.

So, I (try to) reboot the server from the VNC session. Every stop job (including stuff like dhcpcd) maxes out the timeout, and then it halted instead of rebooting. So I forced it from the VPS panel.

And then after it rebooted, everything was just fine.
