There's something else that might be at least annoying (and _maybe_
correlated to the problem): Various partitions are not properly
dismounted, and if I interpret the messages correctly, a background
file system check is started. This might cause inconsistent file
systems to cause trouble later on.

I'd suggest adding the setting


to /etc/rc.conf and make sure the system comes up at least _once_
into a state where all partitions are properly mounted, _or_ if
there is a severe problem with the file systems, the administrator
will be notified accordingly. (Note that background_fsck can only
deal with a subset of possible problems a "real" fsck can).
