You could try building a debugging version of MySQL and using
gdb to find out why the thing crashes.  It might turn up something
useful.  I've been running with FreeBSD 3.2-STABLE and MySQL 3.22.21
for a while with absolutely no crashes.  What "patches" do you mean?

I saw some recent commits to the FreeBSD threads stuff - it happened
late last week or this weekend - so if you haven't updated that
recently, and you suspect FreeBSD, it might be worth making world
again and compiling a fresh kernel.  Those updates were supposed
to fix both stability and speed issues.
