My M7/Snow Leopard problem is that the kernel often freezes (while  
loading) the first time I evaluate a cell after opening Mathematica.

Then I go to Evaluate>Stop Kernel, and trying again always seems to work.

It's not a HUGE problem, but it wastes a minute of my time whenever it  
happens... about 20% of my Mathematica sessions.
