Maybe the upgrade changed the order of menu entries in menu.1st?  Make 
sure you still have a menu entry that resets the default and halts like 

    savedefault 0

and that the --default=1 part of the command you are using is pointing 
to the right entry (remember the first menu entry is numbered 0 not 1).
