I am not seeing these issues as well...
There should only be a single "Apache OpenOffice" entry in the "Office" 
category from the PBI (which is what I am seeing here), and the same 
goes with Thunderbird in the "Internet" category.  You didn't happen to 
have installed OpenOffice and Thunderbird from ports/packages have you?

For the desktop/menu removals, try running this command and see if it 
works for you (or if there is some error):
pbi_icon del-desktop del-menu
You can see all the options for the pbi_icon command if you just run it 
once without arguments.

Similarly, the only reason that the "auto-update" button would not work 
for you that I can think of is that you installed the PBI as root, but 
are trying to set the auto-update status as user, even though the 
application does not require root permissions to install (causing it to 
try and use user permissions, but failing because root created the dir).
