When trying to set up ZFS from the installer, I chose to use encryption. A step I'm not sure whether is related to the bug, but hopefully relevant information.

After entering my password twice, the installer seems to freeze/stall and has sat on that dialog screen for hours.

The emergency shell is responsive and works fine, but the "system console" screen (Alt+F3) shows the following:


Running installation step: keymap
Running installation step: hostname
rm: /tmp/bsdinstall_etc/fstab: No such file or directory
[: -eq argument expected
Running installation step: zfsboot
