I'd say try reinitializing and partitioning (make sure to replace the
driver) with some other software, like FWB's HDT or LaCie's SilverLining.
Won't hurt _that_ much to give it a whirl, and there's a good possibility
that you'll solve your problem. I know that APS's older drivers flaked
under 7.5, maybe bsd found a similar failure mode.
