Has anyone had issues with the area near the clock/Spotlight freezing occasionally? I was able to replicate this quite frequently by initiating a manual .Mac sync, but have since disabled .Mac after noticing it caused this issue (both my G5 and iBook experience this issue) Even with .Mac syncing disabled this issue has been occuring. My clock stops updating and mousing over any "Apple" items in this area of the screen gives me the spinning beach ball. Any non-Apple items in this area respond just fine. I've basically had this issue since I did a clean install of Tiger. Any reponses would be appreciated. Edit: Is there anyway to restart this section of the screen? In Windows I would refer to this as the systray, though I'm unsure if the Mac has any name for this area of the screen. In the short term just restarting whatever is freezing up this area would work.
