10.5: Force FileVault to read Launch Services data
Authored by: unforeseen:X11 on Mar 19, '08 09:32:12AM

Pet bug? Yes, kernel panics are more serious, but since we FileVault-users have to logout every time we want to have TimeMachine generate a backup, I have to log out daily. Imagine the pain it is to revert to my own default Apps every morning!

I must say I'm growing more and more disappointed with Apple, this is the kind of things that have just worked in previous systems (and I'm talking System 7.5+ here), and with Leopard, Apple introduced some very annoying bugs. GET YOUR WORK DONE, CUPERTINO!!!

10.5: Force FileVault to read Launch Services data

This has been intermittently happening to me since at least Tiger, but it's always after rebooting, never on logout.

Yes, this does happen only on a reboot. This gives you lots of times to make many changes to the LaunchServices database, only to see them all fly away as soon as you have to restart for any reason. Fun!

Yes, you're right, only on reboot. However, since SteerMouse stopped working for me after a logout/re-login with Leopard, Restarting is the only option I have in order to get my Backup... :-P
