Your issue was likely fixed in stable/13 on Saturday with
eeec49e0b30a3faf2985e27f163a4c2f7b511e7c by Warner.

I'd love to hear if updating will help with the load-on-boot issue you
have (even though auto-loading will probably be another 24 hours to
come to stable/13 as well).

I am trying to sort some of this out as I type (well in another
window).  I am still seeing "interesting things" (head->desk kind of)
but I'll try to sort the essential only.

Hopefully more tonight but likely during the day tomorrow.
