I got some weird disklabel behavior, rpc.yppasswdd doesn't work and nfsd crashes on portscans/nessus-probes. That and a lot of system instability. I don't have to reboot daily, but the box has never passed 20 days uptime.
Prior to yesterdays reboot, it was up 11 days, which seems to be about my average. I used to run FreeBSD 4.6 (before moving to 5), and it never showed a sign of instability, with uptimes going from 30 to 90 days (I rarely get more because my power grid becomes unstable during thunder or wind-stroms, so I shut down all machines during those).
