Thanks for the info. A little late, though, as I don't feel like
reinstalling now downgrading now.
However, this machine is not critical to me, I just installed it to see
how faster Debian GNU/kFreeBSD can be compared to GNU/Linux on aging

I'm willing to help fix the problems though. So I first try to notice,
then report, then try to provide a fix.
