lots of replies and no suggestion to try on FreeBSD. How about trying
on one? I believe if it crashed on FreeBSD, the developers would be
interested in helping to solve it. Try using the 9.0-beta1 since
8.2-release has some problems importing certain zpools.

Asking Oracle for help without support contract would be like shouting
in vacuum space...
