Yes, I do (and did at the time I sent the above message).
Upgrading to the most recently nightly build at <http://
bibdesk.demokratia.org/beta/BibDesk-20060103.dmg> did not remedy the
problem, even after re-installing the plugin. Downgrading to version
1.19 did fix the problem -- and I did not re-install the plugin from
this version. Re-installing 1.21 returned to the "broken" behavior.
Note that renaming the preference files between re-installs also had
no effect. Any other suggestions for getting version 1.21 to work
correctly would be appreciated.
Incidentally, the "Open Recent >" menu item also did not work
for me in BibDesk 1.21: no files were ever listed. It did work
correctly in the 2006-Jan-03 nightly beta and in version 1.19, the
latter of which I am using for now.
