scplugin and spotlight

A mystery was solved today! The current build of SCPlugin (v.269) causes the search field of the System Preferences application to not work under Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). Specifically, the preference pane for SCPlugin, not the actual extension.

SCPlugin add a contextual menu to Finder for Subversion. It also is able to “badge” files in the Finder to show their subversion status. It is a nice tool, but hardly required. In any case, if you want your searches to work again, just remove the preference pane for it from /Library/PreferencePanes. SCPlugin will still work, but you won’t be able to change the location of the subversion binary or disable the plugin easily without restoring the preference pane.
