I'm using PyMOL version 1.3 installed via Fink on my MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard 10.6.4. I've noticed a strange OS-specific bug when using the Spaces feature of my Mac while running PyMOL. If I attempt to change Space, my system appears to do some sort of restart, without actually restarting. In other words, every program quits and the even Finder relaunches and anything unsaved gets lost. I realize this is a fairly system specific bug, but I'm wondering if anyone else running Snow Leopard who uses the Spaces feature runs into this and if so, whether or not you've found a solution. Normally I would just stop using the Spaces feature, but I've gotten in the habit of using it and do it without thinking, and lose everything I'm working on. Any advice would help, but I'm hoping to not have to turn off the feature. Thanks.
