Will do but first I'll update my kernel to see if that fixes it.  It looks
like it was just under the wire:

FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT #1: Mon Jun 30 03:09:24 PDT 2003  cvs at shoebox:/e/scratch/obj/e/data/FreeBSD/5-src/sys/LAPTOP  i386

Sorry for what looks like a false report.  I must have overlooked updating
my kernel due to the past boot problems gcc 3.3 caused.
