If it wasn't for the following facts (which where in the orginal
message and/or the immediate followup to Pyun):

    * All applications are effected for example here is something that
happened earlier tonight (if I was organized I could of copied many of
these over the last few days [was doing a portupgrade -afk] but this
is the only one I copied):

    FTP also was sending garbagged data

    * It is time triggered plus to some extent the only common
denominator being time and re(4)

    * Rebooting the FreeBSD machine [static IP and DMZ] (and nothing
else on the network) always solves the problem

This seems to only have appeared recently in 8-current (say last two
weeks or so)

If you can tell me how to capture a phantom I would be able to do this.
