I'm running FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE #0: Sun Feb 24 19:59:52 UTC 2008     root at  i386

About a day after install root login no longer works - even on the console.

I see the following in /var/log/auth.log:
May 10 14:22:37 wx sshd[86223]: Accepted password for root from port 1492 ssh2
May 10 14:22:37 wx sshd[86223]: Received disconnect from 0: 

And in /var/log/messages:
May 10 14:27:51 wx kernel: pid 86237 (csh), uid 0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)

New to FreeBSD after using Linux for a long time.  I'd really like to get this to workfor my web server/weather station which is currently running on Debian Linux.
