I agree. It's probably not the driver ahd(4) itself, since the cvs log
says it was last changed some 4 months ago...

Unluckily the system hangs hard (num lock hangs too) and I can't get
into the debugger... if I understood it correctly, CTRL+ALT+ESC should
drop me into the debugger.
I went back to 5.4-release, got the latest sources of RELENG_6 via cvsup
and build a new kernel.
This one hangs too, but, if I hit CTRL+ALT+ESC a bit earlier (just
before it hangs), I can drop into db>
Main question now: When should I enter the debugger ?
It's obviously too late, if the system already hangs... but it won't
help if I enter the debugger too early, right ?
any suggestions ?
thanks so far and regards,
