If you happen to get it to go away let me know what you did. I'm 
surprised that my diskless kernel stopped doing it and it's the same 
source I use to build my regular kernal with.

The one thing I noticed is that I don't see the kernel module for the rl 
interface. So something funky is going on. In the diskless kldstat I 
don't see any of the interface modules loaded. Once again, I used that 
diskless script to copy the information.

Oh well. Hopefully more of this comes up and somebody will have a solution.
