Fixed kernel panic issue problem with Dashboard

That jumped out at me... how could a bunch of web applets in a nice view trigger a kernel panic? Unless they were accessing the shell and running a command... but they'd need admin privileges to run anything that would do any harm.

September? I hope it's not a sign of laptops released in Sept, because I need mine in August and will not buy the current-gen.

Anyway, on-topic.... great list of fixes, always getting me impressed! However, it won't fix my coreaudiod that is never responding, and my UserEventAgent that is also never responding. UEA since 10.5.0 and coreaudiod, since a couple of months, actually I have no idea when it started doing that. But I can listen to music and stuff.

Also, I don't know if it's flash that's causing the problem, but when I maximize videos on Youtube, or another site I'm going to, it takes like 3-4 seconds to maximise, it freezes a little and it plays the video... or it just won't do anything except hide the dock and show a beach ball.

It seems so just by looking at the models this should not be installed.

I have a feeling that the lack of Intel graphics drivers means that maybe the suckage associated with the current drivers is going to be fixed :D

1.8GB of space eh? Thats how big 10.5.4 was for me.

Of course all thats saying is it's going to overwrite about 1.8GB of files. Meaning it's not actually using that much space.

Safari seems spiffier. ;)

All seriousness though it feels a hint quicker, I'll test it more when I can get home and break out a few 3D things. :)
