    I have a whacky, low priority question, but I'd still appreciate some
    advice on how to fix it. I recently downgraded from Leopard to Tiger
    on my mini. The system actually failed to boot after a upgrade to
    Leopard so I decided to go back to Tiger using archive and install.

    Now to my question. For one of the users on my system when selecting
    "Change Desktop Background" from the desktop context menu, I see the
    icon for the Leopard system settings app appear and disapear on the
    dock and then nothing happens. I can only change the desktop by
    opening the system settings icon from the dock.

    It's not that big of a deal, but I'd still like to fix it if I can. It
    works fine for the other users.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I actually did check the log as you were
    writing this ;-) The log showed some link errors and then I realized
    it was trying to run system preferences from the /PreviousSystem
    folder. I had already gotten everything I wanted from there and was
    leaving it as just in case. I deleted it and now everything is
    working. Again, not a big deal, but was bugging me a little.

    Leopard was actually working fine for me. It was a little slow as I
    only have 512 RAM in my G4 mini.

    After one of the security updates it failed to start after I rebooted.
    It would hang when rebooting. I finally gave up and did the archive
    and install back to Tiger. My wimpy machine seems to perform better
    with Tiger. I haven't gotten up the guts to crack the box open to add
    RAM. The fact that there are no screws is sort of scary to me. Once
    the box is open I don't think the RAM slots are easy to get to either.
