10.5: Force FileVault to read Launch Services data
Authored by: johnsawyercjs on Mar 19, '08 12:45:04PM

As Typhoon14 says below, this is a serious issue, affecting other people too, so his tip is not a soapbox for his "pet bug". MacOSXHints isn't just for reporting ways to get OS X to do things that aren't always obvious--it's also for reporting fixes and workarounds for bugs. This tip isn't out of place or self-serving at all--it's using MacOSXHints in exactly the way it was intended.

It wouldn't be productive for him to keep the tip to himself, or just let it appear in Apple Discussions, or disappear into the Apple bug reporter, to maybe get fixed some day, while people who need the fix simply wait. If you have kernel panic problems, see if you can figure out, or if someone else has, a fix or workaround, and report it here and elsewhere. Nobody will blast you for it--they'll thank you. There's no issue of "prioritization" in tips, bugs, etc. submitted here on MacOSXHints.
