This is more than "occasionally".  I can easily make it happen.  Or rather, I 
can't make it not-happen.  fsck during reboot is the major chunk of the cycle 

I'll be glad to try to get more information if somebody wants to teach me how 
to debug this sort of thing.  The system locks up so I have no information.

If not, I'll try NetBSD-2.0
