Replying to myself...

I made the cardinal sin of not including a uname -a... The system in 
question is: FreeBSD bling.home 6.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 6.0-CURRENT #1: Sat 
Sep 11 18:31:59 EDT 2004     root at bling.home:/usr/CURRENT/sys/i386/compile/BLING  i386

I have a fresh dmesg up at http://bling.properkernel.com/dmesg.boot.txt 
and a boot -v at http://bling.properkernel.com/boot-v.txt
