this is a problem older than lion, unfortunately, but since the problem still exists i thought i'd try this forum.


basically, i'm looking for a definitive answer to whether you can reliably use aperture as a source for desktop pictures (or the screen saver, for that matter).  the problem of course is that aperture only shows up occasionally in the system preferences desktop-picture/screen-saver dialog.  mostly it doesn't show up at all, sometimes it shows up as just the word "aperture" (but with no content and no sub-directories), and sometimes (rarely and with no predictablility i've discovered) it shows up with all its contents.


my question: does anyone know why this is so broken and whether there is a fix?  and has apple ever actually acknowledged this problem?
