Hardware
MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (Model 4,1)
2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

Software
Mac OS X 10.6.4 Snow Leopard
Bitcoin 0.3.7 (according to Bitcoin >> About)

Problems
Preferences: the preferences I have tried all have zero effect as far as I can tell. "Minimize to the tray instead of the taskbar" & "Minimize to the tray on close" do nothing (including effecting the cpu usage...see below). Start Bitcoin on system startup is grayed out although I have added it manually to my login items. I have not tried "Limit coin generation to 'x' processors" or "Connect through socks4 proxy:", but I can only guess that these options are not working either.

CPU Usage: when generating coins top shows Bitcoin at ~187% CPU...this seems extreme? A friend just explained what a "nice process" is. Sorry.

Crash On Close: about ever other time I attempt to close Bitcoin using Bitcoin >> Quit the app crashes rather than closing like a friendly app should.

Coin Generation:
frankly I am trusting that this is NOT a bug, but just bad luck. I have been running the app for a few weeks now with zero generation. Again, I assume this is bad luck, but considering the other problems I wanted to mention it in case others were noticing this that were using my setup as well.

-----------
If there are any known solution to these problems or if there is anything I can do to help sort them out please let me know. Thanks!

The first 5 minutes I used bitcoin about a three weeks ago I generated a block straight away and haven't generated another since. I think it's purely based on luck. Using the OSX client here.

"Minimize to the tray instead of the taskbar" & "Minimize to the tray on close" must not be implemented yet on the Mac.  We should grey them out in the next version.

Sorry I've been kind of MIA lately.. I will try to look into these problems, thanks for the detailed information.  I think it would be nice to enable the Command-H method of hiding the app.. the tray thing probably doesn't make much sense for Mac OS.
