    I didn't revert to 10.7.4. I just waited for the fix. I don't know about the consequences if you downgraded to 10.7.4...

    So does this mean that if we downgraded to 10.7.4, we have to reudate to 10.7.5 and then install the supplement?

    I don't know. That should be the way, but I am not 100% sure...

    I just applied the fix, and it's working for me too. I turned Spotlight back on and started it reindexing the whole drive (which it estimates will be done in a couple of hours), and then I started Time Machine doing a 3.5 GB backup, and it's more than halfway through now. Everything seems to be working nicely.

    I love that ride! In fact I had dinner in the restaurant that you can see on the right at the beginning of the ride ;-) (Totally offtopic!)

    Both your method and mine achieve the same end, my method having the added value of permitting unsubscription in one go from any number of threads one may be watching.

    I can confirm that the Supplemental Update is working for me... It seems to have cleared up a lot of errors I was seeing in Console's system.log, too. Spotlight is indexing properly and where needed, and it's not making Time Machine go bonkers and get stuck in Preparing mode foreverrrr... I hope it works for everyone!

    The fix update seems to be working for me, too.

    Supplemental Update worked for me, but didn't seem as smooth as before. Happier, though, now that I'm backed up. 8.5 Gb < 15 minutes; not too bad.

    It's working fine for me ... doing a fresh TM backup, and it's moving right along.

    Given that despite the "About the OS X Lion v10.7.5 Update" document on apple.com having been amended to include a note about the supplemental update, the post date on both the "OS X Lion Update 10.7.5 (Client Combo)" and "OS X Lion Update 10.7.5 (Client)" documents shows as 19 September, the answer to your question would appear to be 'yes'.
