- From what you have described, it's likely that there is some memory
issue. The FreeBSD Virtual Memory system tends to use all physical
memory and this could be a problem for faulty memory chips (i.e. it's
more easy for FreeBSD to trigger problems).
If you have access to the host system and possible, would you please try
to install FreeBSD directly and see if the problem still occurs?
