    I've had so a few irksome quirks/bugs/lock-ups with 10.6.8, here's my list-so far:

    1) Firewire 800 2TB HD seems quirky with the upgrade from 1st install.
    hen I downloaded 10.6.8 and did the install, upon re-boot by the process I got a "white screen". After waiting for the re-boot for 5-10 minutes...I pushed/hold the back button....nothing...un plug the Firewire 800 2TB HD and re-start fine.

    Now, when I select re-start, which I do every few days, same.
    So conclusion some Firewire 800 bug.

    2) Trash can has stuff in it, but shows empty in menu bar...
    Happened twice so far. Its random but occasionaly.
    My simple solution. I made a empty folder on the desktop, moved everything there. Moved it back to the trash, then in the menu bar the trash showed stuff in it, and gave me the option to delete it.

    im pretty sure the latest 1.1 update killed screen sharing. I have 3 mac's that got killed by this update. Cant connect to either from either computer.

    If you do connect, the screen sharing app crashes on every machine
