Yay!  These changes strike me as very good.

Perhaps we could add a comment here requesting that the user try to test 
whether the problem happens on another platform.  If the problem only shows up 
on FreeBSD, the user should definitely report it to the &os developers.  If 
the problem is reproducable on other platforms, the user should definitely 
report it to the original authors, and maybe CC: the &os developers.
