I have the latest update installed ( Saapunki). And I'm doing a recursive grep in root shell:

"grep -r android_storage /"

At some point the phone just reboots. Same thing happens with find/grep combo (find only searches for normal files with -type f).

I don't think this is normal behaviour and I can't check the system log before reboot... Anything I can do to debug?

You should not run recursive grep or find against /dev-dir as root. As currently opening some files there by root will cause device to reboot.

We are looking into the issue...

Actually the fix for that should be in the next update ;)
