10.5: Force FileVault to read Launch Services data
Authored by: michelcolman on Mar 20, '08 01:07:45AM

This bug deserves to be fixed asap, as it does affect many users. It used to affect me too, before I switched to a non-FileVault account with a seperate encrypted disk image that holds my mail and personal stuff. I never figured out it had something to do with FileVault.

It's apparently very easy to fix, too, so it will take an Apple engineer maybe 5 minutes before he starts working on your pet kernel panic bug ;-)

So it deserves to be bumped up a little by multiple bug reports. Which would you do first?

- Major bug that affects one user and may take days or weeks to figure out, let alone fix.
- Minor bug that affects lots of users and takes 5 minutes to fix.

10.5: Force FileVault to read Launch Services data

Just because the workaround is 'easy', doesn't mean that the correct fix will also be as easy. It will most likely take an apple developer significantly more than 5 minutes.
