I've never seen a modern version of FreeBSD lock up as a result of this,
so that's a little odd.

I had to research this earlier this year.  The default is 200, so in my
case, raising the value to 250 solved the problem.  I fixed it by adding
the setting to my kernel config and building a new kernel.  I believe
you can also set it in loader.conf

I haven't tried setting it higher than 250 (haven't had the need) but
I've seen some posts suggesting that setting it too high can cause
kernel panics.  I recommend bumping it to 250, then go to 300 if the
problem doesn't go away -- but in any event, don't increase it
drastically.
