Had to perform a Time Machine restore but now anytime a reboot occurs, the machine (10.8.2) boots from a volume other than what is selected in System Prefs. The desired system can only be booted to by pressing the Option key at boot and then clicking the already-selected arrow.

 

The desired boot volume is "SolidState", below labeled as disk0s2. Performing a reboot will result in booting from "TimeMachine" (disk2s2) which has OS 10.6.8 on it. Curiously, after this volume is booted to, System Prefs still reports the selected boot volume is "SolidState".

Have booted into the Recovery partition, repaired permissions, repair disk, all to no effect. No problems reported either.

 

Any ideas? Thanks!
