Testing PCBSD 9.0-RC2-x64 installed from "full" DVD.

While in the KDE Windows Manager there are two minor glitches:

1.  KNotes plasters its little yellow sticky notes on the screen after
waking from hibernation or after rebooting.  This is an important problem
because the pop-ups usually display the content of what was in the "copy"
buffer (as used in the context of copy & paste).  The copy buffer display
is not necessarily limited to the last capture but may be something that
was done several routines earlier.  Aside from being annoying, it reveals
potentially confidential information on the one hand, or the URL that you
copied in order to visit Web Page X.  How do you stop KNotes from posting
on the screen in KDE?

2.  I could not get the Marble Desktop program to work.  It hangs with a
segmentation fault, and (according to the KDE error report window that
comes up) the report details "contain no useful information."
