Fascinating. I had completed the upgrade by the time you had sent this
email. I just checked and my freebsd-boot partition is 256k.

That was 100% part of the Digital Ocean install, I'm not sure I had any
control over the size of that partition when I installed.

Would 256k be big enough for 13-RELEASE? I'd rather take the pain of
upgrading now if I need to go up to 512k.
