    Heh. Safari actually does feel a LOT more snappier with that little update.

    Either that update, or the Filevault reorginizing thing totally screwed me. Wiped out my Mail (lost all my settings and some of my mail), lost all of my Finder settings, lost all of my System Preference settings, still looking to see if anything else got [email protected]#$ed up!



    Again, I don't know if it was the security update or filevault. All I know is I applied the update, did the restart, filevault did its thing and after the restart life sucked

    Shit. That does suck. I'm going to hold off on this one for a few days.

    It is File Vault. If you restart, you will have your preferences scrambled.

    I admit, it's certainly a suspect, but I have successfully restarted a couple times since enabling Filevault without the above issues. Of course, that might not mean anything. I'm wondering now if I should turn Filevault off...

    I just posted a more detailed (and rant-filled, I suppose) version of this warning in the OS X forum. I just disabled mine after having to create a new keychain and Dock. Grrr... I could be wrong about it, but it is all that it could be, honestly, after days of working with it.
