Running FreeBSD 9.0-STABLE,

I have run this box for a long time as a WiFi access point for my
home laptops and smartphones and never had a problem, the config was:
# Wi-Fi setup
However several days ago I had to run the box as a WiFi client, with
and it began to freeze frequently. It freezes very hard, only the
reset button helps.
Is it possible that wpa_supplicant or some other part of the WiFi
setup causes the hangs? Nothing else has changed in the system besides
its role from the access point to a WiFi client.
