I've got the updated pcbsd-utils && pcbsd-utils-qt4 uploading right now
for 10.0, which will include those fixes you mentioned above.

The trick will be trying to figure out how to ensure users have updated
to those packages first, before doing the 10.0.1 update. I may have to
do some tricks with updating the /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/pcbsd.conf
file to only point to the newer EDGE
package set after the user installs the last pcbsd-utils* updates. I'll
be looking into this sometime this week before we make any 10.0.1
updates live.

ask KDE maintainer why that is, maybe issue porting newer version to

Yea, I think lots of those are VBox related issues. I've run them on
real hardware with good results here anyway.

This may be a bug we have to fix then. Have you opened a ticket yet?
Ken, you aware of any issues with this?
