I'm seeing a similar lockup here with postfix-2.1.1, and kernel/world

when I'm not running X, I can switch between console, but nothing is
echoed back on the screen, except for ctrl-alt-esc. Does this look like
the hang you've been seeing?
The ps command in DDB showed that smtp process is stuck in `lockf' state.
I didn't have time to write down the backtrace, but I can do it on request.
The postfix in question is built on 13 May, and it used to work fine
until I upgraded the kernel on 30 May. I'm going to rebuild it to see if
it's reproducible, after backing up the old binary.
Are you installing postfix from the fbsd-ports tree or download and 
compile version ? Also do you have anything odd in your config ? I'll 
setup a box with postfix and see if I notice any problems.
