It appears the problem persists, but is more difficult to trigger.

I had a reboot again during building of ports. I decreased maxvnodes
further (to about 2/3 of the default, instead of the recommended 4/3 of
the default). Even after that, I had another reboot just now, also
during building of ports.

It takes on the order of several hours to trigger it.

Note that I say "reboot" because that's what it was; it appears that
when this happens when in X (which I suspect is the triggering
difference) a reboot is triggered immediately, while at the console I
get the kernel debugger.

As a result I cannot say for certain that I am still seeing the same
problem; it is only an assumption at this point.

Because swap is on a glabel I have crashdumps turned off, as I was not
sure whether it was safe (i.e., I don't want crashdumps to accidentally
write to the wrong partition).
