All I want for my $129 is for my entire machine, all applications, to NOT freakin' completely lock up for several minutes when the Finder suddenly can't find a previously-mounted network volume. Is that too much to ask?
Evidently it is. Perhaps Steve himself likes this "feature", as it could serve as an excuse to take a break, for example, and therefore it can not be removed or fixed. There is no other (rational) explanation for why previously mounted network volumes are handled so abismally bad in all versions of OSX.
