    Can anyone else try this sequence of events to see if they get the beachball-o-death as well...

    1) open finder
    2) enter a search string which will result in a pdf being displayed
    3) select the pdf and double click on it to open in preview
    4) Preview should contain the same search string and attempt to find the string within the file (bug?)
    5) For the sidebar view (which is empty), select Thumbnails from the selection button (at the bottom of the sidebar)
    6) close preview and return to finder
    7) press the x button to clear your search, it doesn't clear however and finder hangs.

    hopefully it is my system in a state and requiring a reboot.
