So does it mount OK after you manually enter the root?

I'm having a problem very frequently where it picks up the


OK in the loader, but hangs when booting at:

WARNING: ZFS is considered to be an experimental feature in FreeBSD
ZFS filesystem version 6
ZFS storage pool version 6
Trying to mount root from zfs:tank/root

and then it just sits there.  But on other occasions, it gets past that 
and boots fine.  This is without recompiling or anything - so I'm not 
sure what's changing (LOR?)

Anyhow, not sure if that's the same what you're seeing, but I thought 
I'd mention it.
