I guess I thought it was a special Spotlight search window. But I now do
notice the toolbar. Sigh... old eyes. I thought I saw some windows that
didn't have the button on the upper right of the window to toggle the
toolbar and I made too many assumptions.

There are two ``bugs'' in the Finder in 10.3 that are annoying. I wonder if
they are ``fixed'' in Tiger.

1)You can set up a default window format for new windows (Cmd-N) in 10.3
(e.g., completely collapsed sidebar, etc.) but that format doesn't carry
over to the window you get with a new ``folder'' (Cmd-Shft-N). I've got to
completely collapse the sidebar on each new folder window.

2)If you mistakenly Hide the Finder (Cmd-H when the Finder happens to be
active) and then try to Hide the only application running (e.g., TeXShop) it
won't Hide. I know that you shouldn't be able to Hide everything but the
Finder is a special application (e.g., you can normally restart it but not
quit it) so if everything is supposed to be hidden the Finder should come

Just my craziness I guess.

Good Luck,
