I am continuing my testing on version 3.0 Final.

I noticed that, with 3.0 Final open, the service “syslogd” (on OSX Leopard PPC) does get CPU consumption up to 100%, making the machine unusable.

This has never happened with the RC2 version.

It’s possible to have a copy of RC2 while they investigated the problem? Unfortunately I have not kept a copy.

This task depends upon

With QCAD 3 RC2 the problem is not present but I have problem with hatch solid fill & splines.

Priority lowered since less than 3% of Mac OS X users are on a PPC platform.

I found the cause of the problem. From version 3.0 RC2 to 3.0 Final without deleting the old file QCAD3.ini is the problem.

Deleting it and starting from a clean install the problem disappears. For now I do not reappeared since.
