Top(1) shows 5 instances of VBoxClient. Since I am not currently running VirtualBox that surprises me. Why is this happening?
It appears you have virtualbox-ose-additions package installed, and enabled in rc.conf,
those 5 instances are VBoxClient meant to provide a few features, like shared clipboard ... and so on.
Thanks ASX. It was the fact that it was 5 instances that got me paranoid. If that's what it's supposed to be then all's good then. :)
