OFW u:/boot/bootfw.zip vs wp tag

[Training a team in mx so brief.]

Just discovered that when security is disabled, OFW Q3A41 will probe
int:/boot/bootfw.zip but not u:/boot/bootfw.zip .

So OFW upgrades trigger automatically after an OS upgrade (where the
newer bootfw.zip is on the internal disk), but not from USB.

The workaround is hold the "X" gamekey pressed -- this runs the
"secure" codepath, which does probe for u:\boot\bootfw.zip

known? expected?
