Try removing the local_startup line from the rc.conf.  It is already 
defined in the /etc/defaults/rc.conf so it is not needed.

I am wondering if this is causing something in rc confusion.

If that doesn't work.   Turn off everything but 1 or 2 (at most) from 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d scripts see if you can narrow it down.
