Opps, had that backwards, it was fixed post-RC1, works for upcoming RC2 now.

Apparent regression. PC-BSD 9.1, i386, installed from

-rw-rw-rw-+ 1 jgreco wheel 3744110592 Jan 17 2013 PCBSD9.1-x86-DVD.iso
$ md5 PCBSD9.1-x86-DVD.iso
MD5 (PCBSD9.1-x86-DVD.iso) = ad7783c4b0673195d2c9d11cc5480593

which appears to match

Doing nothing more than an install, log in, and going directly to "About" followed by "Net config" to stick in an IP address of and netmask yields

I haven't tried 9.2 yet as I just noticed it was out, so I'm going to leave this as closed for now. However, I thought it worth noting that it seems that it was NOT fixed in 9.1.
