No auto reboot after panic

Setup: Dell 2850 running i386 FreeBSD 5.4-p5 (or so), ACPI enabled and
apparently working (shutdown -p or -r work fine).
After a kernel panic, the console showed "Automatic reboot in 60 seconds
or press any key to interrupt", (or words to that effect), but actually
the machine just sat there for several hours.
When I got to the console, pressing a key said it was interrupting the
automatic reboot (as if the key press had happened in the 60 second
window) and pressing another key rebooted the server.
Does anyone have any idea why the server didn't reboot automatically,
and what might make it reboot next time it panics (if there is a next time).
I'm sure I've seen a similar problem mentioned before, but searching the
mail archives and google didn't turn up anything useful that I could see.
