Ok, don't use re1 for anything - the box is stable. Use re1 (even for 
fairly low volumes of traffic) and the box locks up hard after a random 
amount of time.

I got a couple more 're1 watchdog timeout' errors.

I tried enabling DDB and 'break to debugger' (this works when the box is up 
and running) - but I can't break to the debugger when the box is locked up.

So with nothing logged on the console, no route to the debugger - and no 
other errors logged (with the latest firmware) apart from a now very 
occasional 're1 watchdog timeout' - I'm a little stuck for what to do next 
[apart from don't use re1 on PC Engines APU1].

Checking on the Realtek site they have drivers for up to FreeBSD 9 - I'll 
probably drop them an email and see if they have anything for 10 / 10.1.
