I have a feeling that this is a hardware problem.

At least Linux and Mac OS X. I do not reboot FreeBSD and Solaris :)

On Friday, I've started collection of drift stats from some NTP pool

to guess type of OS when you see these graphs. I believe some reboot  
events will be clearly visible on these graphs.
