Well this is embarrassing... I see that I failed to set the boot guard prompt behavior in the production PGP policy.  Instead, it was set only in the test policy used by me, and me alone.  Sorry folks!

I have corrected the policy setting.  BootGuard should revert to the old-style behavior on next policy refresh.  Let me know.

Personally, this is not a big deal to me, as I prefer this to passphrase-only authentication.

Currently we suspect that this behavior is the result of the PGP Desktop software not being able to communicate with the management server at "pgpcentral.uvm.edu" immediately after the installation process.  Without a network connection, the client system cannot get an updated policy, and so it defaults to the 10.2+ boot prompt behavior of requesting username and password.

We are in the process of attempting to reproduce this problem in a controlled environment and will update this list when we have more information.  In the meantime, if you experience this problem please try this procedure:
