Hi Evan,

I realize you're under non-disclosure, but I think this is a safe subject. Is Jaguar's problem with SCX not showing up in the Finder menu being addressed in Panther?

Hi Evan,

Developer Support tells me they can't reproduce the bug I filed under Panther. But then again, they tell me that about EVERY bug I ever filed against Jaguar.

We'll have to wait and see. Panther's not ever close to ready yet, you know.

P.S. It has NOTHING TO DO WITH SCX - it's a bug in the OS. If there's anything at all in the Input Menu (doesn't have to be SCX) its configuration is read from the root user. That's the problem.

So the question to ask is: Will Apple fix the bug where International Preferences (date & time formats are also affectedd by this bug) are read from the root user's preferences instead of the auto-login user's preferences?

A: I sure as hell hope so.
