CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData console errors from plist files

  • Version Tested: 1.1a9 (Intel)
  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.4 Intel

Description

I get a (harmless?) chain of console errors every time I start MagiCal. If you'd like me to attach my plists or flush the config files explain carefully how and I'll report back.

Cheers,
flip

I haven't been able to fnd any explanation for this, although I've noticed a few other applications also seem to generate this error.

Other than being a bit annoying if you're trying to check the console logs, it doesn't seem to do any harm.

If I can figure out what's causing it, I will fix it. In the mean time I suggest that you don't worry about it.

For what it's worth, I have a similar issue on the PPC version. Log below, in case this additional information is a useful clue...
