What's an "L" light?

Pin 13's built-in LED has the legend "L" printed next to it on the PCB.

I can get more specific as necessary

Does your sketch do anything with pin 13 intentionally? AWOL is right, the entire sketch would be helpful here.

I realize I'm being vague,

So, quit being vague - show us the "simple script", show us the circuit.

but generally what causes the board to up and restart?

Overheating, hitting the reset button, running out of memory, voltage dips, EMI, ESD ...lots of stuff.

I'm running a program interfacing with an LED display.  I have a simple script running in void loop() that just continually spits out numbers.  After only 7 iterations or so, the "L" light blinks, and the board restarts.
