So there I was watching a dvd (Alias Season 1 for those interested) uploading some ftp files in the background. Newsfire was on and doing nothing as was Mail. Omniweb was running a search. What happens? The end of the world as we know it? Not really. When I resized the DVD window from full screen to a window I noticed my background was wrong. I had it set to transition every 15 minutes and it appears that one transition had gone wrong. One picture filled the top left corner out to around halfway (and then cut off), the other picture was behind it full size. At the same time I realized I couldn't use the Dock, I had set to hide and it didn't pop up like it was supposed to. I opened up tinker tools via Quicksilver and it booted really slowly but it did open. I hit relaunch the dock. Nothing. I opened Activity Monitor and quit the dock. It rebooted but was still broken and oddly enough it was sucking 70-95% of my CPU both before and after the quit. I logged out. It hung with just my broken wallpaper in front of me. I used both the restart and shut down dialogs with no effect and was forced to do a hard power off and then turn it back one. So far Everything is fine. I'm running 10.3.8 on a 12" Rev. C Powerbook. Anyone else experience anything like this?
