Before upgrading from 9.2 to 10.0, I created a new boot environment
with beadm. Then I activated it, and renamed the 'default' environment
As a test of the backup BE, I deactivated 'pcbsd10.0', reactivated
'pcbsd9.2', and re-booted.

Welcome to GRUB!
error: file 'default' not found.

Apparently, it is still trying to find a BE named 'default'. I finally
booted up by doing
grub rescue> prefix=(hd0,msdos1)/ROOT/pcbsd10.0/@/boot/grub
grub rescue> insmod normal
grub rescue> normal
But this problem recurs every time I reboot, either into pcbsd10.0 or
