waiting for X server to shutdown The application 'xfce-mcs-manager' lost its connection to the display :0.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed the application.
FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.

> I have FreeBSD 6.2 running in VMware Workstation 6. Since installing from 6.2 iso yesterday, I have updated the ports collection using portsnap, and installed the following ports: xorg, xfce4, sudo, firefox, emacs. Both HAL and dbus were installed as dependencies. I have tried launching dbus manually using # dbus-launch, and have trawled google for a fix with no success...

>Thanks in advance for your help :)
