:It didn't work. Do you want the new crash dump?

    Hmm.   Yes, but I'd like you to try something... try turning off 
    softupdates and if the problem still occurs I'd like a new crash dump
    and kernel.debug.

    To turn off softupdates you have to boot into single-user mode (its a
    loader menu option), then use 'tunefs -n disable <filesystem>' for
    each filesystem on the disk.  Then reboot.  After a normal boot
    'mount -v' can be used to double check that softupdates has indeed been
    turned off (if you run it now you will see it says 'soft-udpates' in
    the list of options for most of your filesystems.  After turning off
    softupdates and rebooting a mount -v should not say soft-updates for
    any of the filesystems).
