I installed Snow Leopard on three computers yesterday.

On one computer, there was a problem:

I ran the standard 2 + 2 test.

It took forever, and finally, I got a message that there was a problem  
with the evaluation of dynamic content.

Restarting the computer did nothing to fix the problem.

However, when I held down the option key as I started Mathematica, it  
fixed the problem.

I'll be doing some more testing today, but it appears that once  
Mathematica is no longer confused by its own older preferences, it is  
ok.

I don't know if this is related to your problem, though.
