The problem with a hard lock-up out of which you can't escape into the
debugger is that it makes meaningful bug reports impossible.  My non-SMP
workstation has exhibited apparently arbitrary lock-ups since the advent
of SMPng.

I thought I was the only one, since my question on the freebsd-current
mailing list went unanswered.

in there, then this may help us provide better bug reports.

Oh, and a couple of deep breaths are probably in order. :-)
