I installed it in my user library too, OS 10.4.11, Intel, and it works. 
But when I installed it in my user library on a G4 Powerbook running 
10.3.9, it didn't work there. Since you have the same OS I have on my 
Intel, that leaves the G4 in common. It might be an incompatibility with 

One difference though is that TextEdit on my Powerbook does not dim PDF

throws an error about incompatible files.
