Hmm I am surprised not more attention has been brought by your
observations, I have noticed myself freebsd 4.x holds up much better
during ddos then 5.x and 6.x probably due its better robustness and
lighter code.

I do hope but will probably be dissapointed stability and robustness
is on the todo list for the devs in aiming to get 6.x to where 4.x
