Strange HD behavior

I just tried the seagate tools (seatools). While it did not find any bad
block, it nevertheless hung after completing the process, just before
showing any report. So I think my HD is okay. BTW, it's a ST380022A.

I thought that maybe there could be issues related to temperature. Is there
any sort of watchdog in FreeBSD that gets installed by default? =/ Has
anyone ever had a problem like this?

Thanks for the answers / tips / help, but now I've got more questions. :)
