I have also recently experienced this behaviour when doing "Save Image

I did look at the core file but my conclusions were similar to Mark's
- the backtrace was some thousands of frames long and looked
% uname -a
FreeBSD tomo 6.2-RC1 FreeBSD 6.2-RC1 #0: Mon Nov 20 23:48:08 GMT 2006
root at tomo:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/TOMO i386
I also had this behaviour on 6.2-PRERELEASE.
