    I've got a couple of different third party OSX applications that are freezing/crashing whenever I click on an icon in the respective application's toolbar. The PID (213) and error are the same for each application. The system log reads:

    2/2/09 8:06:37 PM Assignment Planner[213]

    The '-[NSSegmentedCell _setSegmentedCellStyle:]' method is deprecated. Please use -[NSSegmentedCell setSegmentStyle:] instead. This message will only be reported once.

    I've googled this for some time but only come up with forums about Coco software writing. This appears to be a problem with my prefs or something given that it is spread across several applications.

    I've tried:
    Deleting related pref files
    Permissions repairs
    Fresh reinstall of effected programs

    Any ideas?

    There is an error in the program, is it compatible with 10.5?

    It just means that the person who wrote the software used old Cocoa Objective-C methods which have been deprecated. There is no way to fix this as an end user except for upgrading to the latest version of the software or seeing if the developer will fix the problem.
