    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering, has anyone else noticed a disappearance of the new startup and login screen animations since 10.7.1?

    In 10.7.0 a typical startup went thus:
    Grey screen with grey Apple logo, which then fades into a white screen with grey Apple logo. The grey Apple slides up as the user avatar, password box and linen background fade in.

    In 10.7.1 my startup does this:
    Grey Apple logo which then jumps to a fully formed password screen. All the animations and fades in between have disappeared.

    I tried turning off the password protection at start up, but I just get a grey screen with Apple logo, which flickers to a blank white screen, then the desktop fades in. Again, the grey logo on the white screen is missing now.

    This issue is only on my late 2009 iMac, my MBP still has all the startup flourishes and animations. I even partitioned the iMac and installed a fresh copy of Lion ... animations still missing.

    Is anyone else seeing this or have any suggestions?
