This bug was fixed with Mac OS X 10.5. (One of the few bugs I've 
reported that hasn't been marked "duplicate" :) )

Apple changes the features their fonts support fairly randomly with 
every OS release. Bugs get fixed and new bugs appear; 10.5 decimated 
the features supported by Apple's version of Palatino (presumably in 
order to make it map feature-to-feature with a real OpenType font -- 
impending signs of Apple silently dropping AAT, perhaps?).
