FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE and Adaptec 2400A Controller

I am having an issue with the Adaptec 2400A controller using the latest 
FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE code. The server is hanging with this message:

asr0: Blink LED 0x3 resetting adapter

The server doesn't reboot or halt, it just sits there with that error 
message until you manually reboot it with the reset switch. I have tried 
switching the cache RAM with no luck. This happens once every couple of 
days, but it's been known to happen after 1 day, or take as long as 10 
days. There is nothing in /var/log/messages. I'm using four 60GB ATA/100 
disks in a RAID 5 array. Has anyone had a similar issue, and if so what 
was the solution?
