I have had a similar issue with FreeBSD 4.8 before , this was due to some 
daemons taking some time to start e.g squid, Postfix but if you happen to go 
to another box and try to actually connect to say port 25 , you would find 
the process is already running and the port is actually operational at that 
point, so i usually assumed it was just a slight stall on the console screen 
which needed you to hit the Ctrl-C combination for your own satisfaction that 
all processes are up and running.

ma 2 cents

** i assume that is what you also experiencing
