[PC-BSD Dev] AppCafe (and Chromium)

Sometime the App Cafe while it is checking for updates reaches 100% cpu
usage, when I go and check what is going on I see that it is trying to
fetch from URLs that are not currently open from the firewall/proxy or
When this happens other 3 things at the same time happen too:
- Opening the AppCafe results in a grey/white page screen, seems all
scrambled and no icons or anything shows, only the Top menu
- Chromium stop displaying the rendered page, the menu works, the tabs
do have the icons, if I move the mouse around the "white page" I see the
cursor change and if I click I do see the URL change and pages get called.
- LibreOffice and Open Office do not open right away, I have to click
on them at least twice, then kill the first process and the second one open.
Those things always happen at the same time, I am not sure if the
hanging of the fetch is the cause or a symptom. The only way to recover
from this status is to restart the computer. Closing/Reopening the
programs do not work. When I close the program all the processes are
closed as well.
I tried to remove the content of the /tmp folder and /var/tmp paying
attention to the files needed by LXDE, but no success. I even tried to
remove my chromium folder thinking it was chromium the problem, but
again nothing. I did remove the config, uninstalled chromium, close App
Cafe and the Update Manager, reinstalled chromium, still nothing,
Log-Out and Log back in... nothing...
I am reverting to Firefox for now, but it is a lot slower rendering the
pages and I am forced to close it every few hours as the memory
consumption gets too high.
I really do not think this is a chromium issue, but most likely some
library gets "messed up"
