[PC-BSD Testing] 9.1 RR post-`pkg upgrade -fy`

Hi all,

I wanted to report a couple of oddities, post `pkg upgrade -fy`. I ran pkg
upgrade in an attempt to fix the Control Panel > Printing dialog errors
I've been getting [1].

pkg upgrade ran without a hitch, but...
1) After rebooting, I noticed that a) GNOME was the default DE (I'm only
using LXDE), and b) all of the DE entries in the list box were doubled.
Both of these were *not* persistent as they went away after logging out &
back in. I didn't think to grab a screen shot.
2) I'm getting the same errors, post-pkg upgrade, with the Printer dialog.
3) I tried to install a pkg (mtpfs) for some testing and got the following
error when pkg attempts to upgrade itself [2].

Overall, RR is pretty solid and having the pkgNG infrastructure is nothing
short of super awesome. Thanks a bunch for all the time & hard work you all
are putting into it.
