Inevitable Mac OS X 10.6.4 update problems surface

'F***ed up' fonts and iTunes lead the list

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

There are scattered reports of problems with Apple's Snow Leopard update that was released yesterday. Ah, tradition.

Over on the Apple Discussions forum, early updaters are reporting a series of troubles after upgrading to Mac OS X version 10.6.4:

There's also one thread that details a number of problems, including system crashes, systemUIserver crashing when Spotlight is invoked, problems with iTunes and Microsoft Office, and slushy performance.

If you've ever worked on a Help Desk, you know how devilishly difficult it is to diagnose many of such problems without access to the affected machine — the problems may be due to 10.6.4, unsophisticated users, wonky extensions and third-party apps, a combination of all three, or frickin' gamma rays, for all we know.

But if you're experiencing any of the aforementioned foul-ups, keep an eye on the relevant thread. Some well-informed poster might come up with the magic bullet. ®
