I've been experimenting with PXE-driven installations in preparation for the arrival of a pile of new servers, and I had a mostly-working setup for FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE when 6.1 was announced this week.

I've upgraded to 6.1 on my build system, and have it serving install data and an mfsroot with my own install.cfg in it. It all works fine except that after the target system reboots, and apparently every time it boots, I get this:
  "<pause; press any key to proceed to next line or '.' to end pause mode>"
and have to press . to start the boot process proper.

Has something changed in the console? The same system was fine with 6.0-RELEASE. One other possibly relevant thing is that my install script does set /boot.config to contain '-p'. Has something happened with keyboard detection that would make the pause mode come on? It seems that this pause mode has been in the console code for a while, although I didn't know about it until now.

Thanks in advance for any light anyone can shed...
