i have had the exact same thing when running portupgrade -ra on my
freebsd 6.0 amd64, but nothing would help except to power reboot the
computer. i tried pluggin in and out the usb keyboard, tried a ps2
keyboard. the only thing i couldnt try if i can connect to it still via
ssh. if i couldnt, i would say the machine was frozen.
