Cheater, can you provide more detailed information about your environment? Are you powering the Arduino board from USB? external power? what can you tell us about the power supply? What are you "loading" to make it reset?
QuoteHow I'm testing is waiting for the boot loader to complete then shoving it in to the 5v and GND pins.Resets it every time.You mean you are shoving the 5V and GND pins together? Or you are shoving with a motor to the +5V and GND pins?

Well as it turns out, plugging in a SD card is enough to reset it *and* confuse my computer big time.It decided to ditch /dev/ttyUSB0 and start using /dev/ttyUSB1.Oh and yes the SD card was using a decoupling capacitor.I appear to have solved it by using the somewhat larger 220uf capacitor I mentioned before.
if the SD has capacitors, then you can't really hot swap it, as it's goign to short the power supply.
that's interesting... is the SD card 3.3V? Anyway I think this thread points to the need for- 10uF or more on the 3.3V line- additional (100uF+) on the +5 line
