After writing to the HD with dd for a few hours and using
stress -i 10 -d 10 the machine lost connectivity. I waited until
today to be sure if the machine hung, paniced or just lost network
connectivity. I don't have local access or serial access, so this
is the only way i could do it. I've seen in the logs during the
night various messages of:

Dec 10 00:33:49 yac kernel: re0: watchdog timeout
Dec 10 00:33:49 yac kernel: re0: link state changed to DOWN
Dec 10 00:33:52 yac kernel: re0: link state changed to UP

The interface never recovered and i wasn't able to ping the machine
until i rebooted. Nagios was checking all the time and no recovery

The netstat -i in daily scripts shows just one Oerrs. I'm used to
have a lot of them, but seems this time the card didn't recover from
the only one. I also want to say that this is not a regression, as
it happened before with 7.1 -BETA 2 code.

Is there anything more i can try?
