9.0.4 won't restart-can't quit application
I can't my PM 8500/180 with 9.0.4 to restart anymore. System complains that a process is running that can't be quit, so I have to use three-finger salute to restart (after carefully dismounting all my ext. disks). I used MacKnife to list my processes, but everything seems benign. One hint: complaint about OTTCPDM (push) when I tried something I can't replicate. Will Conflict Catcher help here?

If you force quit the Finder beforehand, does that help? My guess is that it's a system file that the Finder is using, which is making the Finder unable to quit (assuming that you are correct in stating that you have no other processes running).

I can force the finder to quit , then restart. (System crashes because of a problem w/ Behierarchic.) As long as I avoid doing anything TCP/IP related, system will restart fine. Confirms that OT TCPDM is somehow involved in this.

Are you using a 3rd party utility called A-Dock by chance? I installed the newest version (released sometime last week) and this exact same thing happened to me every time on my G4/400 (gigabit). A-Dock was the culprit in the background and I could not force kill it to save my life. Haven't emailed the author yet. Who know's...that's about all I can offer. Good luck!

**YES** that's exactly what I changed!! I'll experiment next week (when back in the office). I'm sure that's the culprit.
