    Powerbook G4, running OS 10.3.3 which is heeps better. Networking drives finally work!!! Hurrah.

    But, and this causes no problems other than it is starting to bug me, the little flag in the top right keeps changing on it's own. From UK to USA.

    Now come on Apple, us Brits like our little stripes. I'm sure Mr Blair will add the stars soon enough.

    Anyone else?

    I don't use Special Characters, so I haven't been witness to that kind of behavior. Maybe turn it off, repair permissions, restart, and then try it again.

    Click on the flag, open locations then uncheck the US option. Sorted.

    Yep I could do that, but now it's getting kind of fun seeing when and why it happens.

    BTW I just repaired permissions after installing 10.3.3, about 5 or 6 to fix.

    Let's see what happens.
