With all due respect, that was an answer... You asked if anyone had "Any
clues?" so I relayed my experience which, quite frankly, is a pretty big
clue that perhaps SMP and threads in -current don't work. You may not
like that answer, but it's certainly a legitimate one :-)

What makes you think they (the developers) aren't interested in
identifying and fixing SMP bugs? I am one user, relaying my experiences.
I am not a developer.
However, a bit of research would have shown that this is a known issue and
it being worked on.

Then I'd suggest waiting for an answer from a developer to see if they
want any debugging info from you. My guess is, though, that it's simply a
matter of waiting for the bugs to be ironed out.
Remember, this is -current we're talking about. Given the state of flux
it's frequently in, you migh want to consider yourself lucky that it
compiled, much less booted :-)
