 * For notes on sandboxing tools such as Bundler or Isolate,
   see the {Sandbox}[link:Sandbox.html] page.
+* nginx with "sendfile on" under FreeBSD 8 is broken when
+  uploads are buffered to disk.  Disabling sendfile is required to
+  work around this bug which should be fixed in newer versions of FreeBSD.
 * Under Ruby 1.9.1, methods like Array#shuffle and Array#sample will
   segfault if called after forking.  This is fixed in trunk (r26936) and
   should be backported to the next 1.9.1 stable release (after p378).
