    Since the last tiger update I have a sticky dock - by this I mean that is freezes suddenly with no animation or functionality. It can seemingly happen at any time I move over the dock. For some reason, clicking on the spotlight icon top right seems to clear whatever the problem is. IS anyone else experiencing something similar - is the anything I can try to fix this?

    Have you done the usual repairing permissions and reboot? :)

    Okay, how about deleting the Dock preferences then. Look for a file named com.apple.dock.plist and send it to the trash (or at least a different folder). :)

    Also, before you do that, do you have any theme changing hacks or apps running?

    Did that, stil acting jerky - so I downloaded OnyX from Titanium and ran everything - seem to be ok for the moment.

    Or System Optimiser X has solved some intractable problems for me.
