I just started seeing this a day or two ago. Using the latest build for PPC. (OS 10.4.11)
When loading certain pages a download starts and a small blank text file named Desktop-1-1, Desktop-2-1, etc appears in the root User level directory and then also an empty folder named Desktop-1, Desktop-2, etc. appears inside the specific user's Home directory.
Certain pages will cause this every time.
Mostly news sites but here is a blog that's doing it reliably and repeatably...
I'm not on Tiger and cannot reproduce.
Same problem on this URL as well...
Here's another URL...
This annoying behavior continues...
Although no longer happening on the original URLs I provided, it's happening on this new URL...
Is there any more I can do to help track this down?
Problem continues with:
Version 4.0.2 (4530.19, r47291)
This was fixed in r47509.
