This is fixed in version 2.2.10 and new 3.0.0.
I would suggest you backup your data as .gramps xml files, then uninstall, and reinstall.

As you run BSD, it would be nice if you update http://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Installation#Windows.2C_BSD.2C_MacOs.2C_Solaris so other users know how to install GRAMPS on FreeBSD, especially for the new 3.0.0 release (which has many new features)

Not sure it qualifies as a bug, probably more a configuration issue on my end, but it would be nice to know just what it's looking for that's not working correctly.

Had just opened the program for the first time and tried to create a new data file.
