This Happened to me twice after using 9.1 for several days. I got a few unexpected crashes. After running Norton Utilites it found that the Apple Menu Prefs had damaged resource fork and needed to be trashed. After i let Norton fix everything else I trashed it and no longer have crashes on my Pismo or My G4/450. If anyone else has tried this let us know. Could be the a possible fix to some of the crashes in 9.1.

I also saw my Apple Menu Options Prefs file become corrupted. my system did not crash, but the contents of the Apple Menu Items Folder kept randomly changing for a while. it was one of the strangest behaviours I have seen. every time I went to the Apple menu it contained different things. after I trashed the prefs file it immediately went back to being screwed up as soon as I opened the Apple Menu Options CP again. I had to really erase (using the Secure Delete util that came with StuffIt Deluxe) the prefs file for it to not screw up again. it didn't ever crash though.

be happy!
