both systems have Tyan S2932 mobo w/ same firmware. Additional IPMI card is installed on both.
Kernels are GENERIC on amd64, with either scheduler.
The lock up issue is consistant and it happens in both systems. The way I have to reproduce it is to ssh remotely over a VPN link and get a buildworld going with the output being shown on the ssh session. It may take a few minutes to occur.
