It has only been a few weeks since doing a "world" was dangerous. If you had 
certain USB components, the system would completely lock up at boot time. If 
you tested your installkernel before you did the installworld, you could boot 
kernel.old and run as if nothing was wrong. In a few days, the problem was 
fixed but until then, they had to unplug their USB components and after the 
system had booted, they could plug them back in. The sequence in UPDATING is 
there for a reason.

FWIW, Jason removed both obj and src and it didn't help.
