At least I could track the issue down the RELENG_6 as well. It happens
on the most recent RELENG_6 as well as on the 200710 snapshot from the
servers. Unfortunately I had no chance to track it down on RELENG_7 so
far - getting back in time turned out to be a real pity and installing a
clean system for every dated cvs snapshot is more than a pain.

I'll try to step forward from RELENG_6_2 within the next weeks but
that'll take a lot of time, so it'd be quite helpful, if you can isolate
the possibly affecting changes between RELENG_6_2 and RELENG_6 as well.
