    On a fresh boot of my G5 Power Mac (latest version late 2005, 2GHz), there are usually several fonts in the trash in a folder named Recovered Items. All of the fonts are fonts I have disabled using Font Book, some are normal fonts and some are system fonts that throw up a message to the effect of "Are you sure you want to disable this font?...." when disabling them with Font Book. In this case they are always fonts I will never use, Korean, Chinese or Arabic etc.
    Is this something to be concerned about? I have noticed no problems running the system or in any software, so I just empty the trash and get on with my work.
    Any ideas about why this is happening?

    Thanks for the link. It is nice to hear that these are temporary files that got stranded somehow, but I have not had any apps crashing (the implied reason in that link), and I am running Leopard with the latest updates. In any case I will just keep on emptying the trash when it happens. Thanks again.
