My skin crawled the moment I read this post. Could you provide a bit 
more information about this issue? I manage a very large deployment of 
FreeBSD boxes which are geographically dispersed, and we've started 
upgrading them to the 8.0 release. My default policy is to deny 
everything but the services running, so I generally end with a "deny 
all" statement, and the last thing I want is to lock myself out and have 
to dispatch a technician...

Is this problem localized to any particular architecture? (we have 
sparc64, amd64 and i386 servers deployed). Is this just the stable 
branch that's affected, or was this bug also in the ISO release? (I 
deploy via NFS/FTP/bootp from internal servers hosting the ISO images).
