I was able to duplicate this issue here, and its been fixed in SVN now.

If you would be willing to confirm it fixes your problem, follow these 

# svn co svn://svn.pcbsd.org/pcbsd/trunk/SoftwareManager
# cd SoftwareManager
# qmake-qt4 *.pro
# make install (as root)

Now run the software manager, does it work properly?
