10.6.4 Still Doesn’t Fix Spaces Bug?

The 10.6.3 update may have fixed the AppleEvents Timing Out bug, but one bug that's still around is the Spaces bug I described here. Essentially, if I use ctrl-1 to ctrl-3 to move between my Spaces, quite often the keyboard will stop accepting input (or the OS will stop accepting input from the keyboard) until the Dock is quit (and automatically re-started).

The Dock application controls Spaces. I've worked around this bug by having an AppleScript in my Script Menu that quits the Dock.

  1. Erik, I have been experiencing this bug and I'm on 10.6.4. I thought it may have had something to do with Parallels, but that would appear to be coincidental.
    I have a Dock-killing AppleScript already, and if that fixes it then at least I can start using Spaces again.
    Thank you so much!
