Some improvements in L9.0.1...but why does memory use still suck so bad? Still some 8.x sessions that won't open in 9 (even on a mac pro with tons of ram).

This is a good first step. I'll have to see how 9.0.1 works with SL. I had decided to wait for both a few updates both too the OS and Logic. We'll see how she goes.
