    System Preferences Crashes when selecting Screen Saver
    Any ideas why this would be?

    Edit: Only when selecting iTunes Artwork

    This is a quote I found from Apple's (now defunct) support board:
    The problem seems to happen only when you go to the iTunes Artwork options and try to change the number of rows. If you set it to 2 rows that's when it crashes every time.

    I have fixed my problem by deleting a preference file in my Library called com.apple.sreensaver.iTunesArtwork. Then save the new settings in System Preferences when prompted. You might have to relaunch the Sys Pref a few times until you can get in to change the options for the number of rows to a different setting before it crashes.

    It works fine for me now with 5 rows but I have no idea why it won't work with 2 rows.
    Hopefully the problem will be more gracefully fixed in a future update to OS X.

    On a side note, it is considered uncouth to double post (post twice without a reply between) here at Mac-Forums.

    Thanks for this information and I apologize for my uncouth behavior with regards to double posting in my own post without a reply between them.

    Please, don't tar and feather me
