I had the the same trouble on b9. It was freezing with no message on 
console, neither on log.
It's running on a little compaq deskpro p450 with 2 realtek (rl) ethernet 
card + 1 embeded compaq ethernet card (fxp).
I did several test with different configuration (bios setup (irq 
auto/manuel, acpi, usb desactived, IDE timeout...), pci slot moves... 
Neverless every trying failed approximatively every 24 hours, sometimes less 
(5 min thru 24h).

Troubles started at 1.2b6 if I remember (with freebsd 5.0 too )-;  ) But at 
this time I got some message about ethernet card fxp hanging up (fxp0 Device 
timeout). These messages disappeared since 1.2b9, but freezes stayed.

So I didn't report this trouble before as I was thinking that this is 
probably an hardware trouble with ethernet card and/or motherboard.

Very strange... but since 1.2b10 I can report no freeze since more than 24h
