Comment(by jurg):

 i am an 'in production' neo freerunner user. i have no other phone
 anymore. my girlfriend told me i dropped one or two spots on the ladder of
 evolution. but i am sticking to it...

 but, as a regular user i am very familiar with the WSOD. i have regular
 WSODs and lately i have begun to recognize the pattern.

 i got my freerunner in the summer. even though in holland, it was
 relatively warm. during that period, while not having a truly stable
 phone, i did have a phone without WSODs. slowly the year progressed,
 flashing my freerunner once every week, at least. and with the change of
 seasons i began to see more and more WSODs.

 i had to wear my phone in my the pocket of my pants for a day or two and i
 had no WSODs these days. i thought about it a lot (it IS very irritating)
 but after these couple of days it struck me. i figured it might have to do
 with the temperature of the expensive 'brick'. a simple test did the
 trick: when going to bed i left the freerunner sleeping on my router. and,
 contrary to most other cold mornings, my freerunner woke without the by
 then familiar WSOD.

 now, with some behaviour changes, i managed to climb back another step up
 the ladder again (so i hope.)

 (i hope it helps in finding a solution...)
