Mac OS update corners 'jumping cursors'

Apple says version 10.3.8 of its operating system will fix several bugs related to power outages and thumb-activated navigating.

Apple Computer late Wednesday released a minor update to its Mac OS X Panther operating system. Version 10.3.8 fixes several bugs, including an issue with automatically restarting after a power outage and a problem in which, on rare occasions, a PowerBook G4 would wake from sleep with a black screen and not respond to keyboard or mouse input.

According to Apple, the software update also improves DVD Player compatibility and performance, in some conditions, and also deals with "jumping cursor" issues that might occur while using one's thumb or the side of one's thumb to navigate on a laptop Mac.
