With the patch applied to NetBSD 5.1_RC4 (cvs update -r netbsd-5)  and 
checksums turned on:

the server has been running without any problems for several days. Tests have 
included repeated copies of large files (~200 MB) to the server using scp and 
NFS (with the server as a client). The server has also survived full backups. 
Transfer speeds are at wire speed (11 MB/s for scp, 12 MB/s for NFS).

Please let me know if I should test anything else (unfortunately, I'm unable 
to test Gb/s speed).
