You are under heavy load. There is a post on the subject here:

http://m0n0.ch/wall/list/?action=show_msg&actionargs[]=41&actionargs[]=67

When your m0n0 is under use, se netstat -m to check the current 
configuration/load. you will probably see it is pegged.

I think a standard increase value of:

kern.ipc.nmbclusters=16384

in loader.conf MAY help. Depending on your systems speed. Not sire about the 
driver for rhine NICS. I know realteks are an issue since the ipstack in the 
drivers blows.
