My host is i386, SMP, and it also happens with the current qemu-devel 
port.  It must have been something in -CURRENT that changed, probably 
since May15th-ish.  I can't do a binary search anytime soon to find it. 
  In the past, I've recompiled kqemu and that has done the trick.  I 
have all the debugging built in, but that doesn't stop the system from 
rebooting or powering off.
