But incomplete!

"Update 3: Our thanks to Rosyna from Unsanity.org who pointed out that the above fix for OSX may not be sufficient due to the round-about fashion in which QTL files are handled by OSX (it doesn't use the RTSP handler, hence disabling it isn't a complete fix). She points to this application package as a fix: http://landonf.bikemonkey.org/code/m...der.local.html . NOTE: this fix requires a third party application to be loaded which may introduce its own set of issues and vulnerabilities!
-tk"

I just dumped QT..."The lazy man findith rest." ":O}

Sheesh! Sometimes, an app is more hassle than it's worth.

My thoughts exactly. Apple will fix it, think Apple will take me back when they do? ":O}

Sure, as long as you pay for the "fix" (buy QT Pro).
