I am not sure, but could you try 6-STABLE where possible or
even -CURRENT (which is soon to be 7.0) ? so that we can
determine whether it is a problem in this specific release
or that it's something that we still need to fix in later
releases (like upcoming 6.3 and 7.0)

Thanks for using FreeBSD!

Kind regards,
