Well, I could, but that's a sledgehammer approach and while likely to
work, in the absence of a bug report/fix (I'm not saying there isn't
one), it is not guaranteed to work. For example, it might be freezing
up because of something I can control with configuration (loader.conf
stuff). I'll have to stop the processes for a while and see if I can
reproduce the behaviour while the system is essentially idle.

I'm certainly willing to upgrade but it would be good to go into that
process with more confidence of success.
