    I took a screen shot to help illustrate, but in the menu bar at the top, the word "finder" is reduced to a simple "n"... I haven't done any kind of hacks or anything weird to this machine, and haven't noticed any problems OTHER than this... so I just really wonder if anyone else has seen this/know how to fix it.

    I have had odd things happen to the finder like random menus disapering and or stop working. Has a simple restart fixed it? If that doesn't work, try resetting the computer.

    What's resetting the computer? I'm still on Jag 'till 10.3.3 comes out, so is that a Panther option?

    Resetting the power mangaer is available in all systems and it essential resets the power. Here, ill let apple explain it...http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=14449

    Actually, resetiing the power manager is totaly unrelated to what Mudbug is talking about, but it is worth a shot if nothing else works...

    nah, haven't got to the PMU reset yet - I figured it was something much more simple than that. A logout/login fixes it for a while, but then it starts back up after a bit. Like I said, this seems to have no lasting impact on the machine other than this one bit of weirdness, so really, at the moment it's just a cosmetics thing.
