Just to let everyone know, rsync worked fine. Of course there is still  
some underlying problem, because the system shouldn't panic when using  
tar, but considering that this is FreeBSD 7.3 it is probably not worth  
investigating now that 9 is almost released.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
