Bug Report … SystemUIServer Crashes, iStat Menu

Because there is no way for AL (that I have found) to have the SystemUIServer refresh itself from its log, I restart it when needed, i.e. when changing locations and changing menubar icons. Some of your have pointed out that this breaks apps like iStat Menu, since it hooks itself into the SystemUIServer, but in an apple-did-not-intend-you-to-do-it-this-way.

I’m trying to come up with an elegant way of dealing with this, but until then, just disable the feature in AL.

    Hi Andrew!
    Thank you for this nice app! Unfortunately it doesn’t work for me anymore after updating. From a 0.5 version I updated to the latest version. Rebooting, going back to the 0.5 version, trashing preferences didn’t work.
    I’m on 10.6.2. Maybe the crash report is of any help to you.

    • I am aware of this problem. it should not be an issue if you downgrade to 0.5 however. I’m currently working on a fix, but I’m traveling today so it might be a little while before I get it posted.

      Thanks for the report!
