[PC-BSD Testing] SATA HDD via external USB enclosure: install failure

I have unsuccessfully tried installing v9.0beta2 onto a 160 GB SATA drive,
using 32bit or 64bit USBFULL, and 64bit USB live.

The HDD is a brand new 160GB Western Digital Caviar Blue, it is attached to
an Acomdata Samba USB 2.0 3.5-Inch IDE/SATA Hard Drive Enclosure, which
attaches to my PC via USB.

In all attempts, the install begins but eventually freezes up before
completion (and at different % done each time).
I cannot use the mouse, nor affect anything with the keyboard, the only way
out is to poweroff/reboot.

Has anyone else had similar problems or is there possibly something weird
about my situation?

Contrary to the above results, an IDE drive used within the same enclosure
and USB install media, succeeded.
