Thanks Jonathan. I think I'll reinstall my 7.0 system from scratch and install the apps from packages rather than build from ports and see if that solves the problems. The thing is that the main "serious" use for this box is managing my digital photos - over 12GB of them - and it is getting increasingly difficult with the apps I choose to use becoming unreliable. I've really got to the point where I'm considering switching to Linux as I've tried Mandriva and all the apps I use that I'm having problems with on FreeBSD work just fine under Linux. I don't want to switch - I've been using FreeBSD for ~13 years (since 2.0.5) but since I ditched Windows nearly 2 years ago I need reliability.
