I would like to apologize for shouting "fire" when there is, in fact,
nothing burning. After much head-scratching, some emails with S=F6ren =
and Nate
and trying out a few old kernels without any success, I decided to =
replace
the PSU powering the discs that were causing the timeout messages =
mentioned
in my original email. That fixed the problem. I suspect that the =
combination
of rather unusual temperatures in Sweden over the last 10 days, and very
poor ventilation in the room where the server sits, contributed to the
"half-death" of the PSU.

I should have known better than to suspect FreeBSD given the symptoms =
(which
I've actually seen once before when I think about it), and I would like =
to
apologize for any time wasted trying to help me.
