    just downloaded Fetch 4. In dialogs (specify server, registration) the mouse (cursor) 'hangs' when moving over a field, a button. Mouse will move again, hangs just when entering an object for a while


    puzzeled because I've seen this with two other app's as well (ConceptDraw, )

    thanks, m.

    Hmm, I haven't seen that myself. I'd be interested to hear if the problem persists on Mac OS X 10.1 (which is due out soon). I'll keep my eyes out.

    Jim, when you say you have not seen this, have you used Fetch with MacOS X 10.0.4?

    I am also having this problem, and I don't think it is an issue for Apple to solve. I think this is an issue with Fetch. I have seen this very same issue with other Carbonized Applications.

    This makes the software almost unusable. Please say a fix is on the way?? After all, once we pay for something there is a level of use that is implied with that sale. As it stands now, I have paid for the software, and I don't have basic use of most any feature. In fact, upon starting the application I can only use the keyboard to type in the address. I must hit 'return' on my keyboard and use tab because the mouse feels like I am running OS X in a 68000. This is not a speed issue on my part. I am running an 867 MHz G4.

    Please let us know when or if a fix is on the way.

    It all works fine in OS 9.2.1.

    Yes, I have tried Fetch with X 10.0.4, but no, I haven't seen the behavior you describe. I have not tested that combination on a PowerMac G4 (I have on a PowerBook G4) so perhaps that's an issue.

    What other Carbon applications have you seen with this problem?

    Sounds like it may be the same problem (busy waits during dialogs) that I reported some time ago.

    And yes, the Eudora beta has the same problem. I think it's a Carbon issue.
