and if all works as expected, you have an argument, with evidence, about the actual cause of the problem.
OS X is not designed to work with Growl, rather, Growl is designed to work with OS X.
There's a difference
Since adding Growl 1.2 (no problem with earlier versions) I continually get a pop-up error message entitled "iDisk Error" that states "There is a problem syncing the file 'Growl.prefPane'. The destination (iDisk) does not support symlinks. Try compressing the file or folder first."
I went to the Growl forum for help and was told that Growl doesn't use symlinks and that therefore the problem must be with MacOSX and/or File Sync or some configuration on my system.
I'm using a late 2008 MacBook Pro, with max RAM and MacOSX 10.6.1.
I'd appreciate any help to fix the annoying error (and pop-up). My only alternative right now seems to be to uninstall Growl.
