That's "calcru: negative time" -- an error message that (unfortunately) shows up for any number of reasons. Often the cause is buggy hardware, but sometimes it can be a software problem. For example there's: http://groups.google.co.uk/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&safe=off&threadm=fa.g80oftc.186qv3o%40ifi.uio.no&rnum=7&prev=/groups%3Fq%3Dcalcru%2Bnegative%2Btime%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26oe%3DUTF-8%26safe%3Doff%26sa%3DN%26scoring%3Dd However, unless you're doing some sort of specific action that triggers that particular case, that is unlikely to be the root cause of what you're seeing. See microtime(9) for an explanation of where this comes from. The solution given there, ie: # sysctl -w kern.timecounter.method=1 is a good thing to try first.
