    My switching bar application is bugged !
    When I use apple-tab to switch between application, now the apps name appears strange and all bugged... Any idea about what can be the problem ?
    And by the way what is the real name of this bar ?

    Can you take a screen shot of the problem (press cmd-tab and then, let go the tab without letting go the cmd, and press (cmd-)shift-3).

    The icons bar doesn't seem to have a specific name (at least not mentioned here or here) ;)

    I think it has a name...

    As far as I know, it's just referred to as the "Application Switcher"
    Not exactly exciting, is it?

    Ok then. If none of the usual medicine, repairing permissions, running periodicals and a reboot, helps (and I doubt it here) I have only one suspect: Isn't that Desktop Manager i spot in your menu bar? Last time I tried that, that is a while ago I give you, it caused some erratic behavior on my iBook. No real bugs but just little things. Try quitting that, reboot, and see if the bug is still there...

    Transparent dock screws with it. I have the same problem, but i dont see it as a problem.

    If you actually CARE, uninstall it, otherwise, who cares BIG icons is all I need when switching apps.

    Use ClearDock (and TinkerTool) instead, that doesn't mess with the system... :)

    I thought that was what you meant with "docktransparent"... even if TransparentDock would be so much more obvious... :eek:
