No, I haven't had any trouble.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't work at all; I know for sure that even Rev 3.5 had issues under 10.3 (drawers didn't work right for example).

It may just be here in the States, but I'm seeing virtually no one using 10.3; the earliest OS I've encountered with my clients and their customers has been 10.4.11. Personally I have been targeting 10.4.11 or higher ever since 10.6 came out, and that hasn't given me any problems.
