I decided to give the prebinding tip a try. Everything
seemed to go as expected. However, since running it,
I find that now almost all of my apps take FAR longer
to start up than they used to. For example, Safari,
which used to start up in 5 bounces on a Dual USB 500MHz
iBook, now takes well over 30 bounces! Not nice.
Repairing permissions didn't help fix this problem.
