I can bet it's NIC related problem, probably your re0 is sharing IRQ with something and it's going up/down. The time you see (~3.oo AM) is the moment periodic works, so it doesn't mean the problem happend then. I've seen similar problems on cheap PC hardware with integrated NIC and/or external PCI NIC (re/rl/em). Search for 're0: watchdog timeout' on google. The solution is to replace re with something else - em for example, but there is no guarantee it's going to work - I had same problems on crappy hardware with two identical interfaces plugged in (some model of em - IRRC Intel PRO/1000 GT) -- regards, Maciej Suszko.
