cfd doesn't accept any more connections (1.6.3)

We are running cfd 1.6.3 on a FreeBSD server (3.2

After cfd has been running for about a week to 10 days
or so (sometimes more), cfd will stop accepting packets
from cfengine clients. cfd cannot be killed with a SIGTERM
but a SIGKILL has to be used to kill the process. It
will then restart normally and work for the next 7-10 days.

Here is a backtrace having attached to the 'stalled' process:
(I obscured the IP and host in frame 10 but apart from that it's
a verbatim backtrace)

#0  0x280f88ec in _thread_sys_select () from /usr/lib/
#1  0x280f7fa9 in _thread_kern_sched_state_unlock () from /usr/lib/
#2  0x280f7882 in _thread_kern_sched () from /usr/lib/

#16 0x8049f6d in _start ()

Cfd is definately not sending any packets back to the client:

I know the operating system on that server is quite old, but
I am retisent to say that's the problem! In any case, it's
nigh on impossible to take that machine out of service for
an upgrade.

Any help anyone can shed on the matter would be greatly
