Fix incorrectly-displayed fonts without logging out

or:
rm -rf /Library/Caches/com.apple.ATS
ln -s /private/tmp /Library/Caches/com.apple.ATS


this symlinks the com.apple.ATS folder to /tmp, which gets purged on a regular basis anyway. just reboot, and you should be all set. this only needs to be done once.

Fix incorrectly-displayed fonts without logging out

This seems like an idea that's almost too good to be true... Can anyone think of a downside???

The symlink would probably get removed by some future update, but other than that, this just seems like a no-brainer! Why isn't this (or a similar technique) being implemented by Apple as a way to deal with the all-too-prevalent issue of corrupt font caches?!?
