5.2 acpi hangs on PowerEdge 4350 usb controller - should I file an bug report?

When installing FreeBSD 5.2, booting with acpi enabled, the system hangs
when it detects the server's usb controller. This server (PowerEdge 4350)
has an Intel 440GX chipset with a usb host controller, but it does not have
any usb ports.

If I disable acpi, I can install fine. After compiling a new kernel with all
usb support disabled, I can boot with acpi again.

Even Windows detects the controller with an error (cannot start device)

Should I fill out a bug report for this issue? Just wanted to check with the
gurus first.
