Well, it did lock up today. There is no way to do anything on the console. The entire machine is locked hard. The errors on the console show:

twa0: ERROR: (0x05: 0x210B): Request timed out!: request = 0xc5633430
twa0: INFO: (0x16: 0x1108): Resetting controller...:

I would normally suspect hardware, but I can take and wipe the drives and re-install CentOS5.4 and it will run without any issues. I would prefer not to use Linux, but it is looking like we are going to have to if we can't resolve the issues with these controllers and FreeBSD.
