10.5: Avoid a non-clickable Desktop icon bug
Authored by: zygote on Jan 02, '08 10:38:50AM

I've experienced this recently -- as in the past week it just started happening -- but with Tiger (10.4.11) on a month-old MacBook Pro. I usually have to reboot. Though I'll try a log-out/log-in sequence.

Also recently at start-up, it will occasionally stall in a grey screen. I checked the disk (via Target Disk Mode) with Disk Utility.

I thought maybe it was a RAM issue. I've replaced the Apple RAM with 4 gB from Crucial. But, I ran MemTest (http://www.memtestosx.org/) without finding any errors. (I know there is a slight chance that, based on memtest documentation, that there could still be a defect, but I'm not experiencing any classic bad ram behaviours.)

Next step -- for both issues -- is a dose of AppleJack. We'll see.

I agree & suspect this might be related to a recent security update, although that's pure speculation.
