Mac owners were wondering how long it would take for the first patch for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. The answer was one day.
Login & Keychain Update 1.0 appeared on Saturday (US time) to fix a trio of problems relating to passwords.
It's easy to see how Apple might have overlooked the first problem during testing, as it only surfaces when logging into an account first created in Mac OS X 10.1 or earlier, and even then only if the password has eight or more characters. We're talking about a fairly obscure set of circumstances here - apart from anything else, it would be most unusual for a Mac capable of running Leopard to have ever had 10.0 or 10.1 installed on it at all.
Problem number two led to difficulties in connecting to Wi-Fi networks. Apple didn't spell out the exact circumstances, but iTWire has seen reports from users who have encountered this issue.
