I'm running 6-STABLE and thusfar I haven't had an issue, but I've only
had them installed for a brief period.
My long-term experience with VMWare has been that FreeBSD is in the
"barely supported" category by VMWare. The guest OS tools are designed
to help the VMWare host snoop on the OS internals to better manage
resources like memory, so there's a chance that the tools you're running
are referencing internals changed from 6.x to 7.x.
That'd be my guess. You may want to post over on VMWare's forums and
find out if others have this problem or if 7.x is even considered usable
with the tools.
