Font Cache Problems in Mac OS X 10.3.6 and above

Daring Fireball has some information on a problem bothering a number of Mac OS X users, including me. From these links, you can see that there's a problem with font caches, which cause long (14 minute +) login times. Daring Fireball traced it to a bug in the Apple Type System, which uses Adobe type code to use cache.

In other words, if you've got long startup times, try killing the font caches.
