having same problem of being unable to shutdown unless in the Stoplight prepane "close" is set to MacOS default - perhaps if you could remove "System Preferences" from the excluded applications it would work!

Stoplight prevents Quicksilver from starting properly. After installing Stoplight, Quicksilver would startup and then immediately quit. I uninstalled Stoplight's pref pane and hack package, and Quicksilver is now working fine.

Hope this helps someone :)

I also have the "quit on load" problem with Quicksilver.
I tried to add it to the excluded applications list, or add an exception for it, but it didn't help. Maybe it's related to the weird filename of Quicksilver.app
To fix, I changed the "Close" option for "Default Behaviors" to "Mac OS Default", then added exceptions for the couple of application I want to use Stoplight with.

Please someone fix the app... App creators?. I got annoyed with the whole double logout/shutdown thing so I unistalled it. I love the application and it works great with many applications, so I would hate to lose it forever. Thanks.

Spotlight doesn't play well with Quicksilver. Quicksilver opens then quits. I have listed it in the exceptions however it has not resolved the problem. Only removing Spotlight allows Quicksilver to open.

In addition to quicksilver ibsteve2, Crossover Office simpy refuses to launch! Imagine my frustration after hours spent wondering why my machine didn't reboot or shutdown, why Quicksilver quit then refused to open and why I could no longer try out the new Crossover Beta =P

I've added the above apps to the excludes and changed the "X" button action to "Mac OS Default." Let's see if Stoplight plays nice, otherwise it's going to the trashcan.

Stoplight has caused major print problems for me in FileMaker, Mailsmith and BBEdit. Try to print, and the application you're working in quits instantly (hard crash). TextEdit (e.g.) does not crash and will print.

Getting rid of the pref pane and the SIMBL plugin solved the problem. Cost me (too much) time to find out Stoplight was the culprit.

'iAnnoyance' indeed...

:D

Stoplight has a bug where it doesn't check if the previous window delegate was already self. (Stoplight makes the window's new delegate self and then sends messages to the old delegate, causing a loop if that delegate happened to be self.)

A few Stoplight users are also DVDpedia, Bookpedia and Gamepedia users and this was the case with my programs. Attached is a fixed version of Stoplight for users of the Pedias or other programs where users experience the loop crash.

I have also confirmed that the "close app if last window is closed" causes the restart/shutdown command to only logout, requiring an additional request to shutdown/restart.

I also found a bug that about caused me to kill myself, if you go to "about this mac" and click for more information (the app that brings up serial numbers etc) the system logs you out without ANY warning to save any work or anything.

Seriously, a lot of crying happened.

I installed the posted "stoplight fixed" and it didn't fix my two items I just mentioned (restart requires two requests, and the "more about this mac" button instantly logs you out).

I'd also like to point out that the maximize button appears to place the window 1 pixel to the right of far left (I still see one pixel line worth of my background image).

And lastly I would like to add that I love this plugin so much that I install it on every machine I touch.

an update to the 1 pixel line that's visible on maximization, it happens on whichever side the dock is on, so my claim that it happened on the left was because that'a where my dock was, it moved to the right when I moved my dock there... which is silly because the dock still shows and hides even if I move a window half way off the screen and completely cover the dock line.

A similar problem occurred in my Mac.
This problem will not occur by setting "Default Behaviors" to "Mac OS Default".

Feature request:

With some apps, like an IM client, I don't want the app to quit after I close the last window, but having it lose focus would be nice.

I don't know if OSX has a focus tree, one where the application could go to the back of the line and the next up would then take over, but it SEEMS it should because if I press apple-h to HIDE something, the app that comes up next is logical and appears to be ordered nicely.

I submitted what I thought were pretty serious bugs like 3 months ago, the "shut down causes logoff" bug is pretty silly but the "about this mac" crash is straight up catastrophic.

Isn't this the "official" bugs thread. Is the app going to get supported? Cmon guys, how hard can it be? I really love the modifcations it makes but this is rapidly approaching abandon-ship time.

Same troubs for me on my AMD, iBook G4 works flawlessly with it though.

Endnote X.0.2 is incompatible with Spotlight 1.1. Endnote will not open with Spotlight installed.
