This was fixed in the bootblocks in early December last year. Now I
mona:pmax/compile/MONA 13> sysctl machdep.booted_kernel
machdep.booted_kernel = net
whereas before it would have been something like "3/rz0/net".
You'll need to upgrade your bootblocks (just /boot.pmax really). Note
that the latest snapshot on ftp.netbsd.org was built two days _before_ I
made the bootblock changes. For the impatient, I can mail/ftp/whatever
a boot.pmax to you. For the curious, you do _not_ need to upgrade your
kernel - just the bootblocks.
