I recently migrated my TrueOS desktop home directory to a T580 laptop with fresh freeBSD install, then
used zfs send/receive to copy the 11.2 ROOT back to the desktop.

After the latest 11.2-RELEASE-p3 + pkg updates I have two Lumina problems:
  1. On T580 with drm-next-kmod Intel driver system tray does not show icons
  2. on desktop with Nvidia driver lumina crashes at startup if start menu is present in panel config
I currently have workarounds:
  1. I just guess where icons are in tray as they can still be clicked.
  2. I ssh to desktop remove systemstart from pluginlist= in desktopsettings.conf; login then add it back once panel is started; then start menu icon appears. So far I have not found any log file with any kind of crash message
Does anyone see these effects?

I have double checked the lumina binaries on both machines and sha256 matches.

Some experiments on T420s which has BIOS selection of Nvidia/Intel
  • with Intel selected, both problems were present
    • Tried xorg intel and modesetting drivers
    • tried kernel/i915kms and drm-next-kmod version from ports
  • with Nvidia, selected neither problem happens
    • nvidia-driver from ports

found the cause of the start menu crash, I commented this line in my .xprofile
Code:
## export MALLOC_CONF='narenas:1,tcache:false'
I think this was added to try to reduce Firefox memory consumption
