Hi Paul,

I'm not a kernel hacker or anything like it but some of the guys on
freebsd-stable might be able to help you with your problem. Hence,
I've cc'd this reply to there.

It's probably a more appropriate forum than questions for your
problem. Or rather one where you more likely to get an answer.

You're running stable if it says 6.2 prerelease.
