Sorry, I'm not touching Leopard with the proverbial ten-foot pole.
Ann, who seldom visits this forum (she hangs out in the Photoshop Macintosh and the Adobe Photography forum) is also still on Tiger.
The fix Ann, Buko and I recommend is to revert to Tiger if your machine will run it. If the box came with Leopard installed, it will NOT support Tiger.
Since you never replied or commented, I wonder if you ever read this reply to an earlier question of yours:

yes i did and i thank you so much for your help
i cannot comprehend why LEOPARD is filled with so many spots.
Its up to 10.5.5 and you all are still cursing it?
i respect you all for your opinion and help, but i just dont understand the mismatch. Now with CS4 will all these problems go away?
>Now with CS4 will all these problems go away?
Perhaps some of the issues might go away, but Leopard is a dog, and who knows what other new quirks CS4 will introduce.
Don't go by what I say, but I'm NOT planning to upgrade to CS4, unless ACR 5.x is so spectacular that I feel compelled to. :)

Most people who are having issues with Leopard are having issues with older PPC & G4 machines. The PPC components seem to have more issues on older machines that Leopard on MacIntel seem to have. Some people have simply refused to even try it and if they haven't installed it for themselves, they are passing along second hand info.
I've been running Leopard on MacIntels since 10.5.1 with very few problems...admittedly, I'm not using a lot of Leopard tech such as spaces or Time Machine but I find Leopard on MacIntel to be very stable with CS3 apps (post 10.5.2).
Both Buko and I have tried Leopard on our machines. Buko still keeps Leopard on a spare drive on one of his machines.
All of the users involved [ or mentioned] in this thread, including the OP but excluding you, are on PPC machines, G4s and G5s.
I'm not touching a Mac Pro until Adobe updates Grain Surgery, which they acquired from Visual Infinity and pulled from the market, to Universal Binary.
