I'm new to PCBSD, but I have use FreeBSD for a few years.  I decided I  
wanted to try it see what Kris was able to "wrap" in easy-to-use  
packages.  It's great.  But I've run into the first thing to confuse  
me.  The "system update" flag comes up in the tray and when I double  
click it a dialog box pops up that shows three system updates.  I  
choose the "select all" button and then select "Install selected  
packages."  But, then I get a message saying that the "file already  
exists", and a dialog box that allows me to rename the file.  I do  
that, but then the dialog clears, and the next time the update manager  
runs, it says I still need to install the same three packages.  What  
am I doing wrong?
