-----------------------+---------------------------
 Installed PCBSD9.0-RC1-x64-USBLITE.img on an older Dell Lattitude.
 Connected using the pre-installed network manager to a WPA encrypted
 network and no issues were noted. Laptop was subsequently connected to an
 open access point in another building and the screen turned a solid blue
 and computer became unresponsive.

 Upon manual reboot, X failed to load, Xorg -configure and attempt to load
 X based on that new configuration failed. Rerunning Display Wizard (at
 boot prompt) failed to run. Ethernet drivers refused to load.

 System was reinstalled, same behaviour was displayed two more times.
