It sounds like you are using KDE and it is warning you that the PBI 
desktop/menu entries are "untrusted" before you run them. Is this a good 
summary? If so, I think this is just a security feature within KDE, that 
any new desktop/menu icon is "untrusted" until you run it once and say 
that you trust it. It should be changed to a "trusted" application after 
running it once, so I do not think it is a problem with the PBI's 
themselves, but just getting used to this KDE security feature.

As for desktop/menu listings getting "updated" automatically/correctly, 
I am not sure what you are referring to exactly. Do you mean that when a 
PBI gets updated, the desktop/menu entries are not being updated to 
match (I.E. in the situation when the program binary changes between PBI 

I do not think that there is an official PBI installation "log". Running 
"pbi_add -r <name>" will fetch and install the PBI, and any 
strange/additional debugging info will be displayed in the terminal 
during that installation.
