This sounds like an issue with the bhyve capsicum work.  I've cc'd Allan
and Peter who might be able to help track that down.  It might be useful
if you can run bhyve under ktrace, e.g.:

  sudo ktrace -i -t p sh /usr/share/examples/bhyve/vmrun.sh -d aaaa.raw vm-aaaa

And then post the output of 'sudo kdump'
