7.0-RC1 installs without the problem.
However, I used OpenBSD to zero the entire label before attemting the
install, so that may have been the fix.
I still think that FreeBSD disklabel needs a command to zap the
label area and write a fresh boot one, unconditionally and immediately.
If nothing else it removes a host of unknowns from bug reports like this!
