The b29 update is triggering a serious bug in the kernel that causes this
issues. You can either update to a very recent FreeBSD stable (maximum
about a week old) or you can (forcibly) deinstall openjdk6 and install it
again which will use the bootstrapping jdk. Updating to b28 by using b29 to
compile it will not work.
