After logoff/login, my custom keyboard layouts are not lost though
Arabic QWERTY is often replaced by Arabic. But after restart, they will
vanish from Flag menu and become unchecked in Input Menu tag of

So you have not experienced a similar problem with 10.2.4? At first, I
thought it to be my personal problem. I have installed so many stuffs,
some uncommon stuffs too. So I had been struggling to fix the oddity by
all conceivable means. Trashing
files under Caches folders. Repair Permissions. Installing 10.2 and
Combo updater to 10.2.4 on another partition. Nothing has worked for me.
But yesterday, on another list, I read a posting which *seems* to
complain about the same problem.
If you read messages on the same thread, you'll notice that the others
do not seem to have the problem.
If I'm not mistaken, the author of the message is using my Latin TL and
AsianExtended created by Nobumi Iyanaga.
Both Latin TL and AsianExtended have the same structure for they have
been created by modifying U.S. Extended. So I thought something might
be wrong with my keylayout files though Console has not reported a
May this kind of oddity be caused by inappropriate owner/permission
settings? If so, what is the appropriate setting?
In "About the Mac OS X 10.2.4 Update"
<http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=107362>, it is written
that "Addresses an issue in which the Web browser selection could
unexpectedly change to a different browser after updating your default
browser". Does this fix have something to do with my problem?
Another possibility. Is it possible that this oddity occurs only to
specific model(s) of Mac? I'm running OS X 10.2.4 English International
on PM G4 dual 1 G MDD.
It's too late, almost morning here in Japan. Good night, good day.
