Hang in boot

FreeBSD 9.2. All of my systems are hanging during boot right after the screen that has the picture. Its as if someone hit a space on the keyboard. However, these systems have no keyboard. If I plug one in, or use the serial console, and enter a return, the boot continues properly.
I have in /boot.config: -Dh
I understood from the documentation that would output the boot messages to both the console and serial console if there is no keyboard. Is that somehow stopping the boot? I used to have just -P in /boot/config and never had the problem, but never saw the boot messages on the serial console if someone plugged in a keyboard. These are all remote servers and I never know if there is a keyboard or not.
