OK. It didn't happen on FreeBSD 8.1 when I tried recently. That's

Well, it's not entirely by choice. I have yet to find a system on
which FreeBSD comes back from S3. In any case, the driver paths
taken on FreeBSD are nearly identical to those taken on
Linux, so given a sufficiently stable host, mileage should be the
same on both platforms
