You don't need to reboot, just quit tivoweb via the web front end and restart TiVoWeb from the bash prompt.
Without this line my TiVo was often rebooting (not locking up as in your case) when accessing TiVoWeb, with a signal -2 being recorded in the kernel log.
TiVo lockups I have seen, where nothing has been recorded in the logs have been due to failing disks. A quick smartctl revealed an ever increasing Reallocated_Sector_Ct, meaning the disk is automatically realloacting bad sectors (not good). This went on TiVo OK'ish (sometimes blocky) then suddenly lockup at menu, power cycle and nothing......Oh well new disks and PSU and all sorted.
