k, i have no idea how long this has been like this, but i just noticed it today, the speech icon in the system preferences is gone, you can only see the top of it and then the rest is a "light switch", i guess its not that big of a deal but its an eye sore to me... Anybody have any possible solutions to get this icon back to normal, if its even possible? the help would be much appreciated...thanks

That happened to me one time. I just restarted it and it was fine.

Sure thing! :) This cache and plist corruption issue is one of the more annoying things in OS X. Tiger made some steps in the right direction -- if programs crash repeatedly, it will give you the option to trash the program's preferences files, etc, from a dialog, to see if that solves the problem. This is really something the OS should be able to monitor, detect, and resolve on its own.
