Well done guys, I don't have a FreeBSD box on which I could have tried 
this. I must build a VM with FreeBSD in it some time so I can test this 
stuff. Maybe that's a job for this weekend. Where's the best place to 
get a CD distro of FreeBSD in the UK?

How about I make the change, put out a beta, and let you guys test it 
for me?
Alternatively, as you have already proved the original version works on 
Linux and Solaris, could you just make the change and see if it 
continues to work? That would involve less potential pain for other people?
