tnx very much for reply, kris, stefan and thomas. i was also thinking/fearing for a hardware error. the reason why i didn't investigate sooner is that over the past two years i was running 5.0-RC2 and after that followed current. i always assumed that that could be the reason, but when i reverted a month ago to 5.4-RELEASE and now RELENG_5_4 aka stable, the problem stayed ... plus my kernel debugging skills are very limited - hence learned again :)
so HW failure. now the only thing to do is convince our IT dep that it is broken and ask a new one. the problem is that they only support windows and they go frantic when they see linux, let alone BSD :) so the probably want to put the blame on the OS iso the HW. wish me luck :)
tnx again guys!
