Well, when the System crashed the 2nd or 3rd time I did reset all
Connectors and RAM. I might try another PS, though.
However, as mentioned, the same machine runs nicely with Kubuntu
8.10/amd64. Now, I do know this is is everything but a "proof" that the
Hardware is OK; however, to me this is is kind of "indicator" that the
problem might be lying "more" on the FreeBSD-side than on the
Hardware-side. I did run Kubuntu for I think ~3 weeks w/o any Problems;
I also use KDE 4 on Kubuntu, Firefox 3, Thunderbird, ... on Kubuntu.
When booting into FreeBSD the System dies ~2 times/week (as mentioned,
it might run 5 days in a row w/o trouble and then crash every day or
even several times/day for a fews days).

Well, that seems to be Strigi; it doesn't run on Kubuntu, too (but it
does run fine on Gentoo). However, I might/should turn Nepomuk off
completely. Wanted to give the Semantic Desktop try but it seems it's
not ready for me, yet ;-)
Thanks again; as mentioned I will swap PSs (have an identical one in
another machine) - however, I'm afraid this won't solve the
