You missed a step.  The HEADS UP sent to -current said you needed to
reboot between kernel install and world install.

This is the strictly safe way of upgrading always.  However, many people
skip the reboot (and even the drop to single-user mode) as a shortcut.
Sometimes, the shortcut works.  This time, it doesn't. :-)
