The recently-released Mac OS X 10.5.7 update fixes the atrocious AppleShare transfer speed bug that was introduced by 10.5.6. The problem was that copying files larger than a few hundred kilobytes to certain AppleShare servers (including Mac OS X Server 10.4.11) would go extremely slow, and usually fail after a minute.
But copying files from the server to your Mac was hunky dory! Fun.
I like to think the programmers at Apple refuse to consider allowing software to be released until they have written comprehensive tests for regression testing. I like to think I do the same (I don’t, but I respond faster when you want my attention).
