Fix a possible 'disappearing file on Desktop' bug
Authored by: mjcohen on Mar 18, '05 06:18:57PM

I have a similar, sporadic problem with the finder (older g4 ibook, 10.3.8, < 2gb free out of 40gb). Sometimes, the finder does not show any files. ls and emacs show that the files are really there. The only cure is to log out and log back in.

Weird.

On my last iBook I noticed this frequently when taking screenshots, which are automatically saved to the desktop. They would often disappear as soon as they were created...
