We are running the latest firmware. We upgraded to it in case this was the issue. As you can see from the log entry below, it shows the file system was not shut down cleanly because it was locked and had to be powered off. We are using Intel motherboards, so maybe something with FreeBSD and this card with the Intel motherboard? I know that this card works just fine with this board on CentOS, so...
