I've been cliking around in the installer and once 've ended up with the the 
following configuration: Encryption + ZFS setup (choosed from Advanced disk 
setup). There was an error (at disk partitioning step, system haven't been 
installed): zfs set UFSBOOT tank0/boot. The error was "Syntax: zfs set 
property=value". I don't have the full log, but the error was at this step. I 
can try to reproduce and save the full log, if needed.

P.S. This is not my ususal setup and possibly I won't choose this options if 
it's not testing snapshot. )
