can't wait to test..

I'm just about to revert to FreeBSD i386 this week-end as i can't put 
up with the constant amd64 crashes anymore...

It's not just the twa driver ; the NFS server often start to take 100% 
of CPU time and various network utilities crashes once a week.

I didn't notice much speed increase when I moved from i386 to amd64 so 
it's not going to be too much of an issue to revert back (except 
Subversion server: for some reasons it's much faster on amd64)
