     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.
