    That's just buggy ol' Finder for you. Hopefully it'll get fixed in Leopard, but we've been complaining about it for a while. :eek:

    Weird I've never experienced this. How common is this?

    If Finder's doing too many things at once or is connected to a mounted drive (network or external) then it's quite easy to get it to stall like this, making it difficult to cancel processes.
