Automatically delete Mac OS X dot files from MS-DOS filesystems
Authored by: displaced on Feb 08, '11 08:45:50AM

The System Preferences restarts are most likely nothing to worry about.

Presumably you're running a Mac that's 64-bit capable. But it appears DSW's System Preferences plugin is still 32-bit only. The 64-bit System Preferences process needs to quit and re-open in 32-bit mode in order to load the DSW plugin.

You can verify this by checking the title bar of the System Preferences window after it's restarted. It'll say something like <b>Do Something When (32-bit)</b>

Yes, you're right, it did say "32-bit" when it ran. The restarts are annoying, but that's not the main reason I don't like it.
