[OzTeX] does OzTeX work on Leopard? (Update)

After using OzTeX for some time on Leopard and some discussions with
Fred Mayer about printing I should give an update on what is still
working for me and what is not. This does not seem to depend on whether
the original 10.5 is running or the most recent 10.5.2.

1. Printing: Printing to postscript printers is fine. I have access to
a couple of old Apple LaserWriters 4/600 PS and a Xerox Phaser 7300N
and OzTeX prints fine to them. Fred pointed out he was having problems
printing to a non-postscript Epson EPL-5700i, and I have verified the
same error with my HP Laserjet 2300 which also does not have postscript.
The printer driver returns a PMSessionPostScriptBegin error: -30879 and
OzTeX does not spool the document for printing.

The workaround is to use DVIPS in the Tools menu and then open the
resulting postscript file with Preview and print from there.

2. Launching applications: Launching other applications such as  
from the Tools menu gives an error message "Could not find PkgInfo
file for the bundle: AppleVNCServer.bundle". This is benign and clicking
OK should successfully launch the application.

3. Syncing DVI preview to TeX source: This is broken with BBEdit at  
and all that happens is BBEdit goes to the end of the source document
regardless of where I ctrl-click in the preview window.
