Intel Mac, Tiger 10.4.11, Boinc 5.10.45, when you have done a login to a second user without logging out the first user and then ask Boinc to show graphics the graphics window opens on the first users desktop. I have checked that this happens with both Seti and Rosetta.

In addition to the obvious error I'm wondering if this could cause problems when the work unit finishes and the graphics window is still open under another user. I did notice that switching users took much longer with the graphics window up.

I have not tested the screen saver.

Not sure if this is the right place for this post.
