I just tried to reproduce this problem, and what I saw is:

1) The boot block is getting wedged in an infinite loop because it's
reading bogus data for the root directory.  I fixed the infinite loop.

2) The reason it's getting bogus data has to do with inconsistent
geometry translation.  When the BIOS and NetBSD geometries are the same,
I am unable to reproduce the problem.

So, it looks like this is in fact your problem.
