I have this same problem in pfSense 2.0.1 (FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE-p6). It
seems that if I enter ddb using real (usb) keyboard, I can control it
via serial console. Resuming execution will print more characters and
stop. This can be repeated couple of times until entering ddb will
cause what looks like a freeze where not even numlock works but
repeatedly breaking will get me back to usable ddb.
I have disabled all non-essential devices in bios (everything except
usb and serial) and tried booting into single user mode.
