:The problem is very easy to reproduce by loading a big number of different 
:sites in different tabs at the same time. I loaded every result returned 
:by Google about "dragonfly bsd", and the browser froze just a few seconds 
:after that.
     It looks like a DNS issue.  Do it again and see if just before the kq
     hang it also tries to send a DNS lookup request for e.g.

     Doubleclick has always been problematic for me.  It got so bad that I
     create a dummy master zone record for it in my named setup.

     That said, there *IS* a network issue somewhere in the networking stack
     which I can reproduce, and it could have something to do with the 
     problem too.  I intend to find and fix it today.
