New 9.x install won't autoboot

I have an odd situation: I just installed a FreeBSD 9.1 system yesterday, and it always stops that the "Press [Enter] to boot" prompt without doing the 10-second countdown.

Prior to disabling the beastie menu, it would sit at the menu and wait for Enter.


I've checked /boot/defaults/loader.conf, and it matches that on a system that boots normally. Any ideas?
