Remove a delay when prompted for passwords
Authored by: guybrush on Aug 18, '05 01:49:26PM

This is a nice hint, my password dialogs show up alot faster now!
There's also another "Caches" directory located in /System/Library/Caches.

Seems it stores font caches there, problem and solution about that can be found at http://daringfireball.net/2005/03/font_caches

I think im going to edit the /etc/rc file so it automatically cleans up those dirs on boot (just like clearing the /tmp dir)

Just have to edit:
RMRF_ITEMS="/mach.sym /var/tmp/folders.*"
to:
RMRF_ITEMS="/mach.sym /var/tmp/folders.* /Library/Caches/* /System/Library/Caches/*"

Remove a delay when prompted for passwords

Just to clarify: I believe the Font Cache issue was isolated to 10.3.6-10.3.8 and fixed in 10.3.9 as well as all versions of 10.4. The article was written before 10.3.9 came out.
