Shades Bug Report

Shades becomes very low/dim after switch Logins/users

  • Type: Incorrect Functionality
  • Version Tested: 1.2b3 (Universal)
  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.4 Intel
  • Status: Verified


If shades is on and try to switch users by going to the Login window, then click Back button (in others words, cancel out) Shades becomes very dim, even at the max setting.

The only way to restore the correct shading is to turn Shades off in the Pref panel then back on.

I have not tried to see if this happens if you actually switch users then come back (there is only one user on my machine at this time).

The problems is actually with v1.2b2 but I cannot use 1.2.b3 because I am still on OS X 10.4.11. Not sure if problem still exists in newest version but a fix in old version would be nice (maybe 1.2b2.1?)

I am using v1.2b3 on OS X 10.6.2, and this is still a problem, exactly as described above.
