DropStuff 5.1.2 fixes a bug in the StuffIt Engine and PowerPC-only StuffIt Engine PowerPlug that would cause StuffIt Expander to report errors processing MacBinary-encoded StuffIt 3.x or 4.x archives. StuffIt Expander is free and a 700K download; DropStuff is $30 shareware and a 1.2 MB download. [GD]
