compiles and runs fine on my box:
FreeBSD ice 7.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 7.1-PRERELEASE #17: Wed Sep 3 23:59:58 CEST 2008 root at ice:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/ICE amd64

The number of sleeping processes is much lower than system top:
oldtop: 480 processes: 3 running, 450 sleeping, 2 stopped, 7 zombie, 18 waiting
newtop: 190 processes: 3 running, 160 sleeping, 2 stopped, 7 zombie, 18 waiting
Interestingly, the system top appears to be the one in error:
ice:~>ps auxww|wc -l
Other than that, i could see no obvious problems.
I think the IDE issue is a good point. People with IDE hardware in
their machines should be punished by making them wait to boot...
