Yes, I have the logs.   What should I send you?

Also, I just tried newfs'ing a new journaled device, and mounting it, 
then a few minutes later, crashing the system (not purposely though), 
and it too gives the same results as the other filesystem (same specs, 
10Tb, etc).

The first crash was within about 30 minutes of booting, the second one 
was about the same time-frame.
