Interesting. I have a very similar board in my test machine.
Differences are that I am running i386 and not amd64.
A couple of things I'd like to have tested.
1. Use a i386 livefs CD instead, just as a test. See if the same
problem manifests itself(icky, I really hope it's not this one).
2. after your BSD box is powered up, please set some debugging flags:
send me the output from the console when connecting your device. You
may be able to grab the dmesg and send it to me.
3. "fwcontrol" output and "fwcontrol -p" would be nice as well.
4. Specifically, what type of firewire drive is this?
