Remove the 'minor problem' message Desktop
There seems to be a recurring bug in the PB wherein you'll see a message which reads:

The System has detected a minor problem and corrected it - some of your preferences may be lost

Once you've seen this message once, you may see it over and over and over again. On the MacNN forums, "absmiths" found a solution to the problem. Do the following from a terminal to eliminate the message:
cd ~/Library/Preferences
su root
If you now logout/login, the error message should have vanished.

As with all things beta, however, the effect of this on your system is neither known nor guaranteed!

There's no need to 'su root' to delete a file in your own home folder.

Also the root is redundant, since 'su' defaults to root.
