Official Leopard 10.5 Bugs thread
Ok, found any honest bugs in the latest Apple OS? (not talking applications and compatibility issues)

Here is mine. It's not so big but there is a spelling error on the machine name area of the sharing preference pane. When you enable the use dynamic global hostname featue they seem to have a spelling error with Bonjour. (spelled boRjour).

Anyone know what this dynamic global hostname feature actually does? I couldn't find any info on it.

Not sure if its a bug but...


Safari --> Preferences --> Tabs --> "Always Show Tab Bar" IS MISSING!

Am I alone in always wanting to see the tab bar?
 
MartiNZ Oct 26, 2007 02:10 AM
Tried to reply but "the server was busy" - I sense the presence of a Leopard.

Anyway, as I was trying to say, no, I very much like having the tab bar always showing so the window never has to resize - I'll be searching high and low for the option :).

My PowerBook is 70% complete checking the DVD for consistency before installing Leopard ... yay me!

Geez, I still have to wait 19 hours.
 
AppleOptionFour Oct 26, 2007 02:46 AM
Not a bug either but this has popped up every hour. Not sure how to turn it off; not time machine...but just the dialog.

That's odd. I only saw that window the very first time I enabled Time Machine. That said, I had to do that FOUR times in order to get everything working properly.

not a bug, but my dock disappears and reappears often when i install programs, kinda annoying....

Sounds like it's being killed and then restarts.

Yep, it works :).

All installed and coming to grips. Transluscent menubar appears to have been fully abandoned, and it's going to take some getting used to without the blue at the ends. Aqua toolbars remain, in case anyone was still wondering ;).
 
Brien Oct 26, 2007 04:32 AM
Gah, still using 10.0's progress bars. Oi Apple, oi.

FTP in Finder still struggles, and I can only imagine it's still read-only, although that can be quite a relief. I did get Finder to relaunch after it entered perma-beachball when I tried to disconnect from the ftp share; it did not relaunch until it had thought for a few minutes and then told me the share had been disconnected - this is exactly the sort of thing I thought people said was much better :(.

In other, less pertinent news, 3d dock is growing on me and I've opted for the Garden Palace desktop, with which it looks quite nice.

Software Update fails to connect - "index-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog" couldn't be found on swscan.apple.com. I'm guessing this has to do with my sneaky time zone and will come right in about 19 hours ;).

iTunes dashboard widget is seriously mucked.up for me. I could reliably crash it all throughout Tiger's life, and reported the issue every point point upgrade. Now it doesn't see any playlists, then tells me that iTunes is not open, then just flat out crashes with a dialog. Maybe 10.5.1?

Not really. Maybe your Mac doesn't have a capable GPU?

In my opinion the new Menu Bar is one of the best things of the new GUI. It actually looks very slick in the GM, compared to those early betas.

It isn't showing any playlists here either. My guess is because iTunes hasn't been updated for Leopard yet.

Huh, didn't think of incapable GPU. This machine is a 12" PowerBook 1.5GHz with the GeForce Go5200, and System Profiler says "Hardware Accelerated" for Core Image. Actually I think that's a step up, in Tiger I'm pretty sure it just said "No". Either way, my menubar is solid grey.

Not a bug, I used Software Update two days ago and it worked perfectly on Mac OS X Leopard. I think Apple is updating the servers or something like that.
 
kilechki Oct 26, 2007 08:19 AM
The stupidest "enhancement" to the Finder could qualify as a bug.

Audio files in column view can't be previewed anymore with a slider to choose the position of audio playback. It's a single, black square with a "play" button, which very slowly loads the whole file before being able to play it - without a way to fast forward. If the file is a huge mp3, it takes about 1 or 2 minutes on my G4 before being able to hear the beginning of the song.
Exact same behavior in "preview" pane of the info window, in coverflow and in quick look.

*stupid*

What Macs don't have? If the Mac is supported then ALL features should be. I've always hated when Apple did that. "You can run the new OS on your computers, but all the neat little new stuff will only run on certain higher end Macs that people just purchased not too long ago"

Apple was never like that till OS X.

They started this with the drop shadow on the cursor bit. Saying only certain computers could display it. But then someone called their bluff and came out with a hack that let anyone have that drop shadow'd cursor.

The "splash" effects, and others. I understand certain hardware is needed etc. But they do this basically to make people feel "left out" so they will go out and buy new hardware. I call this guiltware.

I wont fall for it.

Not sure if I'm the only one seeing this or not, but during my install, my keychain was deleted from ~/Library/keychains/

Luckily I have a fairly recent backup, and hopefully I'm the only one to have this problem. So far, no other issues.

Yeah when I hit install yesterday I backup everything in case 10.5 did buggy crap. I haven't had time to actually muck with it to find any real bugs yet.

I remember I flooded Apple with bug reports when 10.0.0 came out. This update is a pretty large update.

:lol:

Kar98 keep a lookout in this link if you are interested in getting that fixed. :)

But that isn't really a "bug" and lets not derail the thread with GUI complaints. There are other threads of the like.

Not sure if this is a bug or a feature. And this was in the latest Developer's release I haven't gotten Final yet but...

I use Terminal to chat in IRC. You used to be able to hold the Command key and double click on any URL and it'd open. I think you could do this in any window to a URL back through OS 9.

Doesn't seem to work now.

If you put magnification on on your Dock and open a Stack, it does not allign properly when you take the mouse off the Dock (and onto the Stack).

It's hard to explain, but the Stack follows the Dock while you're mousing over the Dock, but once you go to the Stack, the Dock Magnification goes away, and your Stack stays where it was when the dock was magnified, not where it is now.

Mouse Issues, and tabbed browsing issues for me...

I have a Razor Pro v1.6 and I can no longer use my macro keys to close windows, and no longer use the center scroll wheel button to open a window in a tab in the background...NOR scroll in windows I can't right click either... my mouse is acting like a one button mouse!!!

oddly, I have Razor software v1.6.6 and they only have 1.6.5 on the website... maybe a downgrade would fix it... i will try and report back... I use those features more then anything else, they are missing and it makes me angry...

EDIT: downgraded mouse drivers and it still does not work, everything works with the mighty mouse however, although I hate that mouse... and still cannot get the razer macro buttons to work, although razer is primarily a windows gamer company, so not to surprised!

EDIT#2 The razer Pro site has a e-mail signup for a leopard driver update! SWEET!! hopefully they will fix it soon!

Does anyone use Backup.app? I can't seem to make my backups work now. Everytime I try to backup something, it gives me the error message: "The backup archive is in use and can't be ejected." I'll see if reinstalling the app helps.

Update: Reinstalling backup seems to have worked for me.
 
Kevin Oct 26, 2007 04:29 PM
None on the Unsanity hacks work anymore. And from what I've recently been told, probably wont be working in 10.5 at all. Apple has gotten a bit strict about system patching. I guess they found a big security flaw in the way such things were being implemented. So the blocked out the way applications that need that APE programming jazz. The system "Checks" somehow. And when things don't match, it stops working.
 
ginoledesma Oct 26, 2007 04:31 PM
I've got weird instances where Spaces is somehow triggered even when it's not enabled. I use the Terminal a lot and the default keybinding of CTRL-ArrowKey interferes with text navigation. Anyone else hitting this?

It doesn't work right away (e.g. launch Terminal, and navigate using CTRL-ArrowKey), but after a while, Spaces is somehow triggered.

So you think it's better to drop support altogether of older Macs rather than to scale down some of the visual eye-candy?

Or the other way around where people who bought more recent hardware are stuffed because the OS doesn't take advantage of it?
 
UnixMac Oct 26, 2007 07:06 PM
My MacPro froze up not once but twice right after I installed 10.5

to make matters worse, I'm having a hard time getting time machine to work with tons of disk space to spare!

Apparently the drop shadow on Dock icons ends below where the label is.

It's also noticeable when the Dock isn't magnified.

Developers need to take that into account and lower the Dock badge by a few pixels. Seems easy enough to fix. :)

I haven't setup Mail yet (waiting for my Gmail to go IMAP). Could someone check to see if Mail's Dock badge's shadow is also cut off?

I think I found a little Finder bug (surprise).

I inadvertently downloaded 2 copies of Growl-1.1.1.dmg via Safari (while Camino was downloading). :)

--Both images automounted upon successful download and showed up in the sidebar in a finder window. However, when I ejected one of them, they both remained. When I ejected the second one, one of them left and one remained as an item in the sidebar that had to be manually removed. Strange.

--If I try and replicate this behavior, the one I "poofed" from the sidebar no longer shows up. But that means it no longer shows up. Annoying.

--All kinds of strange behavior here, in fact.

This happens to me sporadically also. Ejecting the volume does eject it, but it leaves the icon on the Desktop still. Only way I can make it go away is if I double click on the icon. I can't replicate it easily, though.

Is the people that buy the new harder really going to suffer cause when they launch a widget it doesn't look like it dropping in water? (which annoys me BTW)

But that really wasn't my point. In a lot of cases the hardware CAN support it. Apple just blocks it to a certain point so those that haven't bought hardware in awhile feel "guilted" into it , or obsolete because it wont display the latest eye candy.

1) Leopard doesn't have Sherlock, although it is interesting that they actually deleted it.
2,3) AOL? Poo. Plus, it's BETA.
4) That seems to be a widespread issue. Just be glad Leopard didn't lock down your computer, like it did to some...

Another bug, this one with X11.app, it seems. And reproducible.

Any app window that is floating above an xterm window in X11.app ... when your focus is not X11 and you cmd+tab to X11, the window will not come to the top, though the "focus" is on the xterm window. Annoying!

Tested with Camino 1.5.2, Finder, Adium, iChat.

--------------
Another bug: Dock + X11.app
Drag X11.app to the dock. Click on it in the dock. On my system, it opens up in another Dock item instead of just "activating" the permanent one. Click on the permanent one just brings up the same process, however. Silly Apple.

Delays on everything. I've got a Mac Pro with 6GB of RAM, X1900XT yaddy, yaddy. I'm not used to delays. Delays are from waiting for pull down menus mostly but also bouncing between applications. I didn't turn on Time Machine so I don't think the delays are from something indexing the four HDDs in my Mac.

Bugs:

1) My Minolta MC2530DL color laser printer driver is incompatible with 10.5. it was great with 10.4.10. I just fired an email off to the minds of Minolta.

2) If a Safari browser is left on the desktop and not touched for a little while, when touched again, it refused to work. It must be closed and a new Safari browser window opened to work again.

3) It takes ages to fire up Disk Utility (because it seems to want to spin up my HDDs but doesn't) and to check and repair permissions.

4) The keyboard shortcut <command-i> get info doesn't seem to work. The menu command File > Get Info does work.

Add to the list.

Are you able to reproduce these? cmd+i works ok for me. Sounds like a lot of those might be related to indexing?

After a restart <command- i> on the keyboard is working.

Safari browser window becomes inoperable only after I try to print, which spits out the message "A printing error occurred" after the print job spools to the print manager but before the print manager opens or the printer responds by warming up.
