This may well qualify as something for which the appropriate remedy is
"Don't do that, then." :-}

As is my habit,I built today's RELENG_6 on my laptop's slice 1, then
booted it & updated ports, then booted RELENG_7 (on slice 3) and
started building today's RELENG_7.

Shortly thereafter, I headed in to work, leaving the laptop in the trunk
of the car as I drove in (about 30 minutes),busily building stuff.

Now, at home, I normally use the miniPCI wi0 NIC. Since I can't get the
wi0 NIC to associate running RELENG_7 or HEAD, I use a PCMCIA an0 NIC at
home when I run those.

But at work, the access points are configured for 802.11g only -- no
802.11b compatibility. So there, I switch to the laptop's built-in xl0

So I got to my desk, started the Perk script I cobbled up to handle NIC
transitions, wandered off to fill my water bottle, came back,and saw
that the script was trying to get the an0 NIC to associate -- and then I
realized that I had negelcted to plug the cable in to the xl0 NIC.

Oh. :-(

So I hot ^C to interrupt the script and plugged the cable in to the xl0
NIC. I was about to re-run the script and saw that I didn't yet have a
command-line prompt. In an attempt to speed things up(!), I detached
the an0 NIC.

Any hints would be welcome.

(Save for this -- well, and the fact that I can't really use wi0(4) while
running 7.x or 8 -- RELENG_7 seems OK so far.)

I'm about to flip over to slice 4 (to build today's HEAD), but after
that's done, I should be able to look at the crash dump a bit

(And I'm fine with testing changes & patches -- given enough hints, I
can cause moderate damage to unsuspecting source files, even.)
