The version I'm using is 4.5-STABLE cvsuped Feb 20th.

The setup is as follows:

    FreeBSD File Server -> [Linksys 5 port HUB] -> [Intel 24 port HUB] ->
Windows CD Burning system

I removed the Linksys HUB and the error still occured after 300M was

    FreeBSD File Server -> [Intel 24 port HUB] -> Windows CD Burning system

I then switched the port on the Intel HUB and the error still occured after
160M was downloaded.

I'll have to check if the problem occurs on my other servers later today.
