[PC-BSD Testing] Not shutting down smoothly

One little issue I have with PC-BSD final at the moment is problems
Last night when I shut down I got a white screen instead and I have not
been able to shut down cleanly
since the Beta releases. I thought it might be me trying various things
out (like loading
Xara X from Freshports) but I have a fresh Final install and am
experiencing the same
I find when I press the power off button quickly the system will
shutdown but every time I
start now I am getting "warning: /was not properly dismounted" warning
and then sys checks
every time I start up the computer which is a bit of a pain.
I often leave applications open on the desktop when I shutdown (notably
Firefox & Konqueror)
but have even tried shutting everything down and this morning the system
tried to load Konqueror
& system settings although I had cleaned the slate as it were.It would
appear that Freebsd/KDE is screwing
up the shutdown/startup sequence...
Also when I tried to set Firefox as default browser in system default
applications it still gives "pbi-firefox3"
in the dialog and doesn't work :-( .
Other than that a great release. I was pleased to see all the extras
appear such as " Password and User account".
One little extra - under "about me" in the system settings the little
square image cannot be changed with either
the user or su. Any fix for this or just a not enabled future feature??
