    I am going nuts. Ever since turning File Vault on last week, I get this error box when I go to reboot. Any reason for this? All I did was turn File Vault it still flakey? I remember back in my 10.3 iBook days, File Vault was finicky. Is it still? I'm on 10.4.10, brand new MacBook.

    This is completely normal if you've recently deleted many files from your user folder. Go ahead and let it do its thing - Mac OS X is just offering to save you some hard disk space by reducing the size of the FileVault disk image.
