I have no idea why it apparently bites only NetBSD but what I'd do in your place is this:

- - reseat the CPU module. I got bitten by that with my GigE - the thing got loose and the weirdest things started to happen until the machine wouldn't even power up.

- - check and reseat /all/ the RAM modules

- - disconnect/clean/reconnect every connector
Not done yet
