On my 500 mhz blue dalmation running 320 mb of ram with 9.1, I set up multiple users, and everything works great, on the main users desktop. on all the others, the desktop prefs aren't saved when you log out. everything reverts to the main users settings. It is really getting annoying, and I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and how to fix it.

I think that is a fix that Apple introduced with 9.1. In 9.0 I had a lot of crashes because the finder would make these drastic changes between users. Being that Apple doesn't care to support OS 9 more than it has to, I think this is the most effective fix they will offer.

Just a note: Kaleidoscope will keep prefferences between users.
