FreeBSD 9.1 ix driver vlan problem

Hello Jack, list,
I've been dealing with a nagging problem for a day now and decided to ask a
quick question here.
Basically I am building a brand new FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE router which has a
dual port fiber NIC (X520-SR2 10GbE Dual-Port Server Adapter (82599ES)
10GBASE-SR - LC). The network card is recognized fine by the ix driver and
overall works fine.
The issue is when I start adding vlans to this card. It seems like every
time I add a brand new vlan it "freezes" all the rest of the vlans already
configured on that one physical interface. I loose ping between my locally
ifconfig vlan200 create # this is OK
ifconfig vlan200 inet 184.108.40.206/30 vlan 200 vlandev ix1 description DEBUG #
this second line makes the rest of the vlans freeze for 6-7 seconds
On the switch side (Juniper) the physical interface flaps. There's nothing
If I configure the above vlan on an em0 interface - things are just smooth.
I read some similar complaints that have surfaced in the past:
Any idea what might be the problem? Any improvements in 9.2-RC4 in this
Thank you in advance,
