For me personally I found that the crashes are not specific enough for a
watchdog process to work effectively. My solution was quite simple -- I
programmed a button on my remote to stop and restart the backend.
Solved all of my issues of having to log into it to restart the backend.
Now if only I can solve some of the freezing issues like that...
