While we're on the topic of Sheepshaver, the most recent upgrade has
issues with printing - it crashes in such a way that Mac OS X does
not even offer me the option of Close/Reopen/Report. I'm back to the
very first Sheepshaver that you distributed as part of the WP bundle
- you may have to aim to the right with the cursor, but it's stable
and doesn't "eat" files/folders from the 'Unix disk' (Is there
anything one should do after installing a new Sheepshaver, such as
delete the old Prefs file from the previous version?). Oh, and for
the sake of balance, Parallels has its moments, too.
