ichwd problem: watchdog doesn't "bark"

FreeBSD 7.1-PRERELEASE r185311 amd64

ichwd0: <Intel ICH9R watchdog timer> on isa0
ichwd0: Intel ICH9R watchdog timer (ICH9 or equivalent)
ichwd0: timer disabled

isab0 at pci0:0:31:0:      class=0x060100 card=0x50448086 chip=0x29168086
rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = '82801IR (ICH9R) LPC Interface Controller'
    class      = bridge
    subclass   = PCI-ISA

When I start watchdogd I see the following messages:
timer enabled
timeout set to 28 ticks
and then a flow of messages:
timer reloaded

Then I kill -9 watchdogd.
"timer reloded" messages are no longer produced.
And there are no other messages.

But nothing happens for many minutes that I waited.
