This application connects to remote mysql-4.0.x server
and sends some queries and does some calculations and returns.
I tried to run this application from console, and it works
fine. It runs from radius server and it works fine serving
user access requests except sometimes it hangs. It used to
work fine on FreeBSD 5.2-STABLE before upgrading to RELENG-6.
So I guess there is something else.

I tried with with kernel.debug without success:
voiprad# kgdb /dev/mem /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/VOIPRAD/kernel.debug
kgdb: bad namelist
