Every so often, maybe once every few weeks, iStat Menus (1.2) completely freezes on me. None of the graphs/text update, and I get a beach ball if I mouse over them. This can be a bit problematic if I don't notice it right away because I'm using the iSM clock instead of the built-in one; I've almost missed class a couple times (good thing I have other clocks around :)). Sleeping and then waking my computer fixes the freeze.

I'm running 10.5.2 on a MacBook Pro.

Never mind, looks like it's a system bug. When certain iPods (including my 3G model) are connected but not mounted, menu bar things freeze. This affects the ones that hang out on the right, like Apple's things and iStat Menus, but not the kind of menu bar things that hang out on the left and can't be dragged around, like Adium and Google Notifier. It's a very odd bug, if you ask me, but not really a serious one; disconnecting the iPod fixes it.
