I don't use m0n0wall as an AP, but I have experienced the same thing
on my Netgear AP.
If I was shelled into a freeBSD system and 'tar jxvf
somearchive.tar.bz2' it would freeze up the AP. Also running Tripwire
on a Debian system did the same. So so strange! But it was repeatable;
locked it up every time. I would have to powercycle the AP to have it
work again. Netgear released a firmware update a while back that fixed
it. Maybe look at the release notes for the 624 a couple of releases
back (if they exist) and see what caused it.
Good luck!
