as per discussion on #debian-qt-kde, I am hereby rising the severity of this bug 
to serious. 

This bug is a real hurdle for KDE on kfreebsd-* as it enforces a manual X 
restart by the user at every reboot. (Rising the kdmrc ServerTimeout as 
mentioned in various places doesn't help either).

kFreeBSD porters: could you please take a look at that ?
