Good, it's not just me. Thankfully I compile and configure FreeBSD 
machines as desktops and I knew exactly what to change. I disabled 3d 
with my Intel onboard graphics, it just can't handle it. That said, 3d 
effects didn't break the toolbars with the default setting in Xorg! 
There should definitely be a GUI for this when the user clicks on the 
Display module in System Settings.
