My not seeing any problems is consistent with my not using any sound

Did you rule out an invalid file system?  I just tested -current and
was reminded that it doesn't reboot cleanly if ext2fs is mounted.
The unclean reboot doesn't affect r/o mounts of ext2fs.  OTOH, r/o
mounts of dirty file systems are permitted and there is no easy way
to fsck ext2fs file systems under FreeBSD.  (I use fsck.ext2fs from
the e2fsprogs port, but it still needs a block device or filesystem
image to work correctly so it hasn't been easy to use since block
devices were axed.  I sometimes copy file systems to regular files
to use it.)
