Just happened on my mid-2009 MBP as well. The "suck" is that I think my apple care is expired.

The fix didn't work for me.

In a comment on that page though, this worked:

For Mail 4.3:

Copy GrowlMail.mailbundle to ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/ after its been disabled by Mail.app
Open GrowlMail.mailbundle, open Contents/Info.plist in a text editor.
Underneath the SupportedPluginCompatibilityUUIDs key, add the following strings: E71BD599-351A-42C5-9B63-EA5C47F7CE8E, B842F7D0-4D81-4DDF-A672-129CA5B32D57.
Save, restart Mail.app

hmmm

I transfer files, via iChat extensively, prior to this update and never, ever had an issue.
I'm talking files 'tween ~20MB and 100MB. Easy Peasy.

Did a file transfer to test after this update, and I can still attest, my ~42MB file went through easy peasy, under 10.6.4

You or the other end may have a problematic router/firewall.

I wish they set up that trick to work for MailAppetizer too... it's also disabled.

Awesome. I hadn't done the update yet but remembered having to do this last time... I just did it again with the values you reposted above and growlmail continues to work. Thanks for saving me the time of reading through the comments on that link...

Does anyone know if this update fixed the issues with Maya in 10.6.3?

Actually, not. It's a distraction and a waste of time to wait for TRIM.

Older Indilinx-based drives don't need TRIM either. The latest firmware for them from companies like OCZ supports garbage collection that is satisfactory for maintaining high performance.

Sandforce drives have only been on the market about a month and their price/GB is already nearly identical to that of Intel and Indilinx.

My i5 2010 MBP is now displaying TRIM "results" for my G2 Intel SSD

I love Aperture. LOVE IT. It runs a little slow on my MBP 2.33 and there's a lot of graphics quirks when it's rendering. Once it even showed up in the output which was both cool looking and annoying. I'll be downloading this update tomorrow.

I've had the keyboard lockup happen a handful of times (no issues with trackpad). Pretty rare, but very frustrating when it happens so good to know it's fixed.

Unfortunately, my Mac still can't see my Windows computer unless I connect to it via IP address. With my old Leopard Mac it would automatically show up in "Shared". It has on occasion suddenly worked so I don't think it's a configuration issue.

Does anyone know what, if any, major changes/features were added to Mail 4.3?

Why would AppleCare be expired on a system that was only introduced a year ago? The factory warranty is good for a year and AppleCare for 3 years.

So my SystemUIServer has issues. It keeps crashing. It also crashes every app that is tied to it, like Dictionary when the mouse goes over the app window in the foreground.

I've done everything except for reinstall Mac OS X. I'm not the only one reporting this issue so I'll wait a day for some resolution, otherwise backup, reinstall and update to see if that fixes the issue.

i haven't! I use a lacie networkspace as a NAS...

everything worked since 10.6.3!
btw now i see some differences in the process thanks to the patches that involves the SMB protocol!

Seems snappier

Starting with the reboot after 10.6.4 install, my MBP seemed more responsive, but it was when I fired up Parallels/XP/Outlook, that any doubts of noticeable performance improvements vanished. It is obvious that Apple did a lot of code optimization for this release.

I use Adblocker and haven't had any crashes with Safari 5, before or after the 10.6.4 update, although, I suppose it could be site dependent.

I installed the update and instead of restarting afterwards it just beeps at me 3 times repeatedly I'm now using a windows laptop that just took me half an hour to load firefox. Please help!!!!!!!!
post #62 of 69
Phew!, complete coincidence. Took the RAM out and refitted it. All seems well again. I hate installing updates, I always expect something like this to happen!

I called AppleCare and they suggested running DiskUtility (duh! I didn't think of that)
and it found dozens of errors on a MBP I've only used a few weeks (and rarely used
for 2 of them when I had it at home).

Also, Alsoft says that their latest version of Disk Warrior doesn't work with the latest MBPros.
I've e-mailed them asking what to do.

Icon previews. Has this happened to anyone else? An example would be album cover art on music files. It also appears to have broken art with music Quicklook as well

Please let me know if you have different luck on other hardware. For my part, I'll be pissed if it does work for others but happy for you at the same time.

Edit: I wonder if/when people who bought the stock SSD start to raise hell about performance, Apple will give us some indication when we can expect support. * crosses fingers *

I don't believe that Apple has enabled this for common usage as yet.

What's interesting about this of course, is how this affects all other devices with Flash memory. I have some people telling me that their Flash memory devices have slowed up over time. I wonder if it could be the write problems with SSD's being seen here with the controller-less Flash in the devices. If so, this is going to be an ongoing problem until manufacturers solve it with a trim-like software upgrade.

What you're saying isn't true. And Sandforce drives have been out for a while now. They're in their second generation, and a number of companies are offering drives based on that controller. Garbage collection has nothing to do with these erase/write problems. Where do you get that from?

Mail rules page overflow is still broke. This problem, which has been confirmed by Apple many times, still exists as it has since OSX 10.4.0

Prove it for your self...
Open Mail/preferences/Rules
Create a rule
Add 25 plus conditions .... a list of your friends whose email you would like to go to a single folder
When the 25th condition is created the Rules window will overflow off the bottom of the screen. Taking the control buttons out of view with the bottom of the window.

Fortunately the OK button is by default able to be activated with the Enter Key or the window would be deep end problem for mail

Much obliged! Went right to it, thank you!!!

Anyone here have a 2010 Macbook Pro that's constantly crashing hard requiring total restart? I've had this happen now multiple times on a replacement MBP i5 15" Apple sent me. 10.6.4 doesn't seem to fix this extremely serious issue, as I was hoping it would.
