[PC-BSD Testing] Fluxbox and not KDE!

I noticed the same behaviour and was going to send in this report:

The default desktop chosen by the login manager was fluxbox--can this be
 changed to pick KDE or does it only understand alphabetical ordering? 
Should we still be tying fluxbox into KDE or should Fluxbox be added as 
its own supported desktop in the Desktop Settings menu? A user who does 
not know where to find the desktop selecter in the login manager will be
 very disappointed in this "version" of KDE ;-) It took me some minutes 
to find the desktop selector as it does not display in the menu bar 
until after you highlight the username.

Odhiambo, I've updated the Handbook to show how to switch desktops:

I installed PC-BSD 9.0 (latest build) today and was surprised to have Fluxbox as the default WM instead of KDE.
Why is this so?
Can I change it to KDE and how? Any dangers?
This is a non-critical machine.
