However, there are also other problems with 7.0 on Mac OS X, even on Tiger.
I have experienced lockups in inkscape and w3m, apparently related to the
GC, and I am not alone. Downgrading to 6.8 helped. See
http://www.nabble.com/boehmgc-7.0-td13410364.html#a13419887 and this may
also be related to recent messages about problems with multithreaded
programs.
