Still one bothersome bug in 10.5.2

Posted by Jim Jagielski on Saturday, February 16. 2008 in Junk Drawer

There is one bug in 10.5.2 which is still there and still quite irritating. It's in Mail. It keeps on forgetting the width of the columns in list view all the time. I've setup Mail so that in list view it shows the thread cluster, the status, flags, From, Subject, Date Rec'd and Attachments. I then spend time adjusting the width of those columns so I can see the data I want. In particular, I want the Status column wide so I can see how many unread messages there are in the thread. And, without fail, every time I close Mail, it loses those settings, and I need to readjust the column widths again. What a pain.

With my transition to Leopard, I've gone ahead an pretty much dropped Fink. Except for all those packages I compile and build myself, I'm baselining MacPorts. For one thing, it was getting problematic supporting 2 porting implementations and for another, well, Fink's kinda been slipping for awhile, as far as the timeliness of some updates. So right now, I'd say about 75% of my local additions are home-built , 20% via MacPorts and the remaining 5% are some one-off builds of some standard tools (like Wireshark). Oh, yes... I am very much looking forward to OS X 10.5.2... The various bugs and "issues" in 10.5.1 are starting to get quite annoying...
