Just to report that my network users are experiencing the Safari 5 network crash seen elsewhere in these forums.

When you log in as a local user, there isn't a problem, but as soon as you try and log in as a network user, Safari 5 crashes. No matter what you do (relaunch, reset etc) it refuses to work.

Anyone know if Apple have acknowledged this problem and whether there is an ETA for a fix?

    We have the same problem. Our users are not local, our users are on xserve.
    For admin (local) Safari 5 works without any problem ...

    Guys, I have the same problem - network users using safari 5 - no go. Bounces 10 times or so in the dock then quits and asks to send an error report. Local accounts are fine - safari 5's a winner in those cases.

    Have to hope Apple jump on it quick, cos it's a bit of a nightmare.

    for info, running 10.6.4 server, 10.5.8 clients. Actually, I have a 10.6.4 machine which I can try logging on a network user with - see if that makes any difference to how safari 5 works... will get back to you.....

    Hah! Logging a network user on a 10.6.4 machine allows Safari to run perfectly. Fast as anything. Log off and log back onto the 10.5.8 machine - still no joy.

    Come on Apple - quick, quick please.

    Sadly, for those of us on networks using AD, there still appears no solution yet....
