    I've recently been locking down my lab OSX load and this seems to have had an adverse effect on Fetch.

    When run from a low privilege user account upon launch Fetch will bounce a few times in the dock and fail and report "The application Fetch 4.0.3 has unexpectedly quit. The system and other applications have not been affected." I've deleted the three pref files I copied over, but Fetch doesn't last long enough recreate them.

    When run from an admin account Fetch will run correctly.

    Any ideas?

    I haven't seen this. What exactly is different in a "low privilege" user account?

    Would you be willing to run a test version to help figure out the problem? If so please send an email to
