FreeBSD and mpd

Recently, I upgraded from FreeBSD 4.8 to FreeBSD 6.0.  And, I upgraded mpd
from version 3.17 to 3.18.

After the upgrade, several sites began experiencing problems maintaining
their connections (especially under high traffic loads).  When I put the
4.8 server back in place, everything began working normally again.

This is really perplexing to me since I use FreeBSD 6 and mpd in several
locations without any problems.

The server is a Celeron processor with 128 MB of RAM, and two em
interfaces.  I have also added ipf support to the kernel.  I am not seeing
any errors in the logs concerning either interface.  And, I am not seeing
any error messages in the MPD log.

Does anyone know of any problems with mpd 3.18 on FreeBSD?  Or, can
someone suggest a good testing strategy to determine where the problem
