Before reporting a problem in -current it's generally a good idea to upgrade 
to the latest version of the software and see if your problem persists. In 
this case, I think that an upgrade will fix you up.

It's also a good idea to follow this list while running a -current system 
(which technically 6.0 still is) to see if your issue gets discussed by others.
