```Sorry to post to my own post, but this morning I got the following

-----
Hello,

Thank you for the email.

Thank you for taking the time to send us this report. I have forwarded
your examples to our development group.

Unfortunately, there are no general solutions to this problem. I  appear to
be specific to Mac G5. I have included your contact information so  that you
can be notified when this has been resolved.

I am sorry for any inconvenience caused by this problem.

I am now wondering what else do not work with 5.2 on a G5.

Unfortunately now I am stuck with this G5 for minimum 4 years.

I wish Wolfram send me a version - 3, 4, 5, 5.1 or whatever - non-
expiring that does not have this problem on G5.
