Linux Angstrom stuck

Can anybody give me hints:
I have a Variscite board running Linux kernel 2.6.32 and Angstrom.
What can trigger my Linux OS to stuck completely? The screen displays my application and the complete board stuck. No redirected /home/messages entry and no generation of a core file (ulimit -c unlimited at /etc/profile).

What can I do or test, it does not seem to be from the running application?

Thank you in advance.

grep CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ /boot/config-`uname -r`
If that's set to "y" then you should be able to dump the stack of the stuck process into the messages file with the Magic System Request Key "w". See:

If the system is really locked up you can use "c" if you feel up to analyzing a crash dump.
