Because DragonFly and FreeBSD have the same partition id (165,)

Could You tell, what was the version of FreeBSD, which caused such a 
problem, and if this problem occur rather often or always for that 

The fact is that I've installed FreeBSD 4.9 on a drive with DragonFly 
1.2 and boot them with DragonFly bootloader with no extra manipulations.
