Reproduceable freeze with quotas enabled

I have an "easily" (at least to me) reproduceable freeze with both 
6-STABLE and 7-CURRENT on an amd64 SMP machine.

What I do is simply copy a lot of directories, files and symlinks with 
different uids from another machine to this one, using rsync.

With quotas enabled it freezes constantly, without quotas it doesn't.

I have MP_WATCHDOG enabled (the kernel config is the default GENERIC+SMP 
with debuggers and MP_WATCHDOG only) so after the freeze it drops me 
into the debugger in which I can see the following:

FreeBSD/amd64 (helen) (ttyv0)

login: Watchdog timer: 3
Watchdog timer: 2
Watchdog timer: 1
Watchdog timer: 0
Watchdog firing!
NMI ... going to debugger

Any ideas?
