I did an online upgrade from PC-BSD 9.1-RC3 to 9.1, and my whole kdm
environment is gone.
I run PC-BSD inside VirtualBox (it does not run on the iron, see bug
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=170677 amd64/170677 amd64
FreeBSD 9.x does not boot if 2 hard disks are on system)
I started the Update Manager and selected the only available option, the
upgrade to 9.1.
After the download (some hours), I rebooted for the installation.
The installation started, and after some time, a message like "/ file
system full" appeared, and a button for reboot.
I rebooted, and software sets starting with akonadi were being installed.
Eventually the login screen appeared. Wneh I logged in (KDE), all KDE
apps were gone: no konsole, no dolphin, ...
Only fluxbox works.
I should have ample disk space:

Any suggestions beside doing a fresh install or downloading a VrtualBox
