I found the same thing when tinkering with my new installation of 10.4.

10.4: Use SetFile instead of .hidden
Authored by: mjohnson on May 18, '05 02:33:30PM

Why not just use the dev tools SetFile command to set the invisible property. Seems to be covered well here:

10.4: Use SetFile instead of .hidden
Authored by: marook on Oct 29, '07 06:41:58AM

Because SetFile can only hide Folders.
Now, what is the right way to do this under 10.4/5? My install 'forgot' to hide the system file/folders when installing 10.5, so it would be nice to know what to do..

But .hidden does still work..
