Default Problem closing window manager

Hello gang. I've got a strange problem, and I'm need some help figuring out exactly what I'm dealing with.

When I start BSD (PC-BSD 8.2 to be exact), I'm greeted with a graphical login screen, which soon turns me over to my window manager. Everything works fine until I try to exit my window manager. The screen turns black, flickers for a moment, then freezes. The only way to get out of this is to hit the reset button on my computer. That results in an emergency shutdown. When text returns to the screen, the last thing written is "Writing Entropy File" followed by "Terminated." The system then proceeds to close down system processes, synchronize nodes, and the like, ultimately shutting itself down. I haven't been able to so a "graceful" shutdown of BSD since installing this version.

Has anyone in here encountered something like this? If so, what exactly am I dealing with? And how do I fix it?

Thanks in advance,
