This is fixed in version 2.2.10 and new  version 3.0.x
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)
