You might want to ask on the asterisk-bsd list

 From what I gather it seems to be getting better.  I tried back in  
Jan and had some issues with my TDM400 cards but it sounds like the  
issue was fixed.  I am just getting back in and am probably going the  
Linux route :-( for now since it seems to be more mature there and  
the 3rd party add-ons are Linux based and I just need to get the  
phone system running and forget about it (figuratively).
