I fear it's a hard reboot then, if DDB doesn't catch anything. DDB is a kernel 
debugger, even if dump isn't on, it will catch panic stages.

Stray bytes and truncated files are another sign of hard reboot. I'm afraid 
only nvidia can catch this one. Try downgrading to Xorg 7.2 and use the 97xx 
series of the driver, then freeze it until you see some solution posted :p
