    I see my color wheel really often now... doing things that I used to never see it with before.

    Anyone else have this problem/know how to fix it?

    I am not a tech savvy guy, so I can't give much information unless you ask for it specifically haha. All I know is that I see this when I never used to.

    I'm seeing the same thing. And my console looks like War & Peace and Atlas Shrugged combined. Lion is really a pig, not a nimble cat. I can't ever remember an OS filling literally thousands of lines of Console a day (4,000 messages in 3 days!).

    I may bring this to the attention of TS, as this new MBA is only a month old and this has to be sapping performance.

    I just looked at my console - 4000 messages in 1 day. Clearly Apple needs to do some updating to Lion.

    Exactly 4,000? Cuz mine was. I bet we're overflowing the maximum line count ability. :(
