Just to add to the discussion here, I have the same iPod - and it does
the same thing - random freezing - reboot, repeat, et. Al. ... however -
I've noticed that it only happens if I'm playing MP3 - my reasoning for
coming to Rockbox was because of the support for ogg - all of my music
is now ogg, so I haven't experienced this problem since I've converted
my library.

Don't know if that helps or anything, just wanted to throw it in there.
