If you're convinced it's a FreeBSD problem and you'd like to do future
FreeBSD users a favor, then write up a formal problem report (find link
on home page) and also post your 5.4-R problem on freebsd-stable at .  If
you're keen on trying to get the problem fixed, try 6.x on it and if
it does the same thing, report the problem on freebsd-current at .  If
you are really ready to trash the MB, and it's reasonably new, some
developer _might_ want it to debug the problem down on.  Maybe.
