It still applied to 5.* from a sup a month ago.  Locks up solid like
before.  I have not tried 6.*.  I can test it if I can get hold of a
bootable cd with neomagic driver in, however, it seems to be the same
driver in both 5.* and 6, and there has been no real changes for ages.

I might have at some point been able to get sound work by telling some
very old version of FreeBSD that the sound card is something else,
probably soundblaster, however I have not been able to find the kernel
configuration for that setup.  That was probably at least 4 years ago.
That would probably mean that the problem is neomagic driver specific.

I would prefer to test with 5.* environment, the computer is installed
in my car and the access to it is a bit complicated, in particular
getting bootable cd drive in a wedge installed, it does not know how to
boot from USB drives.
