Hey everyone, I figured I'd share an interesting story on the Exposé/Spaces bugs.
Around 10.5.2 or 10.5.3, myself and subsequently many of my users discovered that using Spaces with Times simply stopped working. You'd click the dock icon and the app would activate, but the correct space with the main window wouldn't slide into place. I wracked my brain for days over this and finally nailed it down to an issue with child windows (I won't bore you with the gritty API details). It was definitely an OS X bug as I'd originally suspected.
I filed a bug report that was quickly verified by Apple (and has since been reported in a number of places), and also implemented a quick workaround, which unfortunately resulted in the Exposé glitch most of you have seen (this is technically another OS X bug). I figured having the app work with Spaces was more important at the time, and that Apple would soon fix the bug anyway.
That was a long time ago, and as of 10.5.6, Apple still hasn't fixed the issue, even though I've seen similar issues with bigger apps such as Photoshop CS4. It's a little distressing to know that a fairly important OS feature broken so quickly would not be quickly addressed, but that's just the way things are I guess.
So I'm looking into it again, trying to figure out some more workarounds, and hoping maybe that this will get fixed in 10.5.7 or 10.6. I'm not very hopeful though.
P.S. If you guys have any urgent Times issues please contact firstname.lastname@example.org rather than the support forums here.
