On bootup in Leopard, the Desktop shows no files - no disks, no icons at all. The dock is OK but clicking the Finder icon doesn't open a window. The mouse icon is a spinning beachball on the Desktop.

Has anyone seen this? It's quite restrictive of use of the Mac! Good to have Spotlight find files. Applications in the dock will mostly run OK, but can't restart because this will just hang. Needs a cold power down and boot...

Booting from Leopard DVD and repairing boot hard disk / permissions shows no problems, but the Finder is now dead. Could this be hardware or software failure? Any ideas?
