hi all,

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!
