    _____________________

    i have the latest version of leopard running on my powerbook, and i have loved using spotlight as a simple calculator and i haven't had a problem with it...... until now

    i recently updated to 10.5.1 from 10.5, and now the calculator won't work, i can type in the first number (for example, 2) then a sign (+), then i go to type in the second number, and it freezes for about 10 seconds then it quits and restarts spotlight

    and after that i can't bring up my dock (i use the hide function on the bottom of my screen) unless i right click on the desktop with my mouse

    i was wondering if anyone else has had this problem or just me, i know it's not a major problem but it bothers me and i was hoping someone knows how to fix it

    thanx
