I used to have the same kind of problem on NetBSD 1.6.X on my i386,
until I changed the CPU cooler...
Then I asked a pal, and he confirmed that the motherboard could freeze
the whole computer it the CPU was going too hot.
If it happens in a somewhat high load phase, then I suggest you monitor
your CPU temperature...
Oh, and if you need to heat the box up a bit, I suggest compiling a
netbsd-current distro with all the sets ;)
