Thanks, Barbara.  I am on i386 also.  It sounds as though it could  
very well be but I would expect others to be seeing something similar.  
  The kernel that I am using was built and rebooted from yesterday's  
sources with hopes that the problem would just "go away" same with  
world and ports but no cigar.  It is still the same and I don't have  
an old enough kernel to go back to so I guess I will just have to wait  
until something changes.

Have a great day,
