Not on FreeBSD as far I can see.

P.S. I completely agree with your suggestions on simplifying the setup and
gathering objective information for the purpose of debugging the issue.
I also completely agree that "me too"-ing is not very useful (and often completely
incorrect) for the complex problems like this one.
Thank you.
