Thanks for the welcome.

Thanks, this was the main thing I'd hoped to clarify.

It sounds like you were one of the early adopters of OS X.  There were a
number of oddities in early versions of OS X this being one of them (I think
this particular issue was also a G4 only problem).  I seem to remember that
we'd actually worked around this problem by version 3.5.3 not 4.x but it
certainly isn't an issue any more.

I'm glad to hear that your impressions of things being "lousy" on Carbon
weren't based on the current state of things.  Much has changed.

Thanks, I may take you up on that.

Glad to hear that and also glad to hear you're happy with your current
choice in tools.

Best regards, David
