2.9 Freeze on OSX

Normally OS X will prevent 'badly behaved' drivers (have noted USB 
drivers specifically) from loading into the system, especially so on OS 
X 10.5. Having them then 'forced into being' as startup items is asking 
them to load up again.
Note that some apps have to make specific changes to be OS X 10.5 
friendly (I have seen this with TechTool) and not just drivers, so check 
for updates.
