FreeBSD13-RELEASE aarch64 GNOME black desktop after login

I installed 13.2-RELEASE-p2 aarch64 on an M1 MacMini in UTM (QEMU).
As GUI GNOME installed.
Now qemu-guest-agent-8.0.2 installed too.
I could login my in GNOM's login manager, after this I get a black screen now.
Before without qemu-guest-agent I see GNOME desktop but no mouse no keyboard works, in see only a immobile mouse arrow.

Are there also SPICE tools for FreeBSD13 aarch64 somewhere, but these cannot be found in pkg?

UTM 4.3.5 release are rollback QEMU version to 7.2.0 (in UTM 4.3.4 QEMU 8 used).

Please give me a tip where I can start there, I'm not that familiar with FreeBSD.

Xorg.0.log append

PS: I now separate this from the previous thread, I mark them as 'Solved' - only GNOME installed and starts. The rest (mouse, keyboard) is unsolved.

At logon I test again now - all keyboard keys with arrows, esc, control, option, cmd, back, enter have no effect but only with letters works.
I manage this FreeBSD only with ssh from the Mac.
