I find it simpler to just regularly send my bitcoins to my mtgox account. I've got a yubikey which makes it more secure.

Wallet security seems like one of the more major problems for the general population to use BitCoins, especially considering the unability to recover stolen BitCoins. It seems like Credit Card Fraud squared, if BitCoins were to become really popular.

Although, from a purely theoretical view (and one that most hardcore BitCoin users would oppose), it might be possible to create a central institute then, which could oversee which BitCoins are "legit" and which are reported "stolen".

Just adding my 0.00002 BTC

I run OSX.  My security is:

1 - Create small truecrypt volume ~ 30mb
2 - Mount truecrypt volume
3 - Install (first time) and run (every time after that) the Bitcoin client from truecrypt volume.
4 - When not using Bitcoin client, simply close application.
5 - After Bitcoin client is closed, dismount truecrypt volume, which then is a highly encrypted file containing wallet.dat and all other Bitcoin app files.

I'd be interested to hear anyone's thoughts on this.  It is very simple, and allows me to store my encrypted file anywhere as a backup online.
