FreeBSD is the new information, my guess is based on years of
bug reports with linux/x86_64.

So x86_64 is the only (by me) known correclate and now affects FreeBSD.

Gonna be a bear to catch a deterministic reproducer, always has been.

You will have my immediate attention with any reproducer.

Alternatively, insturmenting transactions & logging in Berkeley DB  
can be attempted,
but that "cure" is non-trivial too.
