Comments about Mac OS X v10.6.7 Supplemental Update for 13-inch MacBook Air (Late 2010)

I don't think this problem is strictly endemic to the Air. Since installing 10.6.7, shutdown has been very slow on my iMac, and this morning, it wouldn't start at all until it'd been powered down and up.

Hoping Apple does something about this soon
