I found some problems in pcbsd 7:

1. If no space left in pcbsd slice KDE is freezes and can not load after 
reboot. I think that is KDE bug. PCBSD 7.1.1 x32. ZFS slice. As 
temporary ugly solution I write script that allocate some temporary file 
and remove it before KDE starts. KDE is steel freezes but can start 
after reboot. BTW could you allow ctrl+alt+backspace in future release?

2. When I add NTFS partitions in fstab system can not find ntfs-3g. 
Could you add ntfs-3g to base system but not to pcbsd localbase (ar may 
be just add symlink)? I have lot of data in NTFS partitions that must be 
accessible in fixed paths just after startup.

3. (minor) When I download plasmoid from internet it can not start 
(problems with python engine- python-kde4 is missing?)

VirtualBox PBI:
1. Kernel modules are not load on boot time and/or start time. They are 
in /usr/Programs/VirtualBoxDir/boot/modules.

2. Seamless (and sometimes fullscreen) mode causes incorrect behavior: 
no windows visible, only button on taskbar, so I can not even stop 
machine normally. Possible VirtualBox for FreeBSD bug. On Ubuntu and 
kubuntu works fine. Or may be problem with two monitors.
