Hi Kris,

Thanks for your help -- that seems to have fixed the problem. You
mentioned that it was only a temporary fix, so what do you suggest doing
now? Is this a bug that I should report?

Do the messages persist if you set debug.mpsafenet=0 in your
/boot/loader.conf and reboot (this is only a workaround since it
causes relative performance degradation, but it will help to identify
where the problem might be)?
