Have you taken a look at your rEFInd config file? Can you post it here? (rodsbooks.com/refind/configfile.html)

When you open SD pref, is the disk highlighted/selected? If not, click on it, then see if anything changes.

comment MacBook pro boot's to wrong OS after waking up from Safe Sleep
Have you checked the "Startup Disk" preference in System Preferences? I'm not familiar enough with rEFInd to know if it would override that, but perhaps when in Safe Sleep mode, OS X still has 'boot control' and goes off of your startup disk preference. (If this works, let me know and I'll post it as an answer.)

comment What is the Mac equivalent of Windows “start” command?
Adding on to @TerryN's answer, the open command has additional options that allow you to explicitly specify what application does the opening. RTMP.

@zigg Thanks for the correction--I was thinking of <a href="administratosphere.wordpress.com/2007/07/19/the-wheel-group/… line</a> being changed to allow the specified user to execute commands as root.

comment How to prevent resetting a login password in single user mode or from a recovery partition?
A common saying in IT Security circles is "Physical Access = Complete Access." If one person can get in, so can someone else.
