I've got Leopard running on my test Mac Mini... all seems to be fine  
once I changed the language to "US" rather than "Australian"... both  
9 and 8.5 crashed when set to "Australian".

It now asks me if I want to use system settings or file settings when  
I open files, but selecting file settings (Australian) works fine.

I haven't done extensive testing, or tested other mission critical  
apps (CS3, MoneyWorks) or FMP 6... but it seems to work fine.

BTW... the web viewer crasher bug (with safari 3 beta) seems to be  
fixed... I can now drag and drop from a FileMaker layout into a  
webviewer input box!

I also had FMSA9 [dev version] installed on this box when I did the  
upgrade.  The admin console works.. but needed reinstalling, but the  
database server and php server are stopped, and won't start.

Hopefully FMS(A)9 will be fixed soon.

Hope this helps.
