Nope, that fix doesn't always do the job. The Apple OS X 10.6 forum has too many accounts (including mine, which had nothing to do with TeX) where folks followed instructions to Safe Boot (one of the things that happens is that the font caches are cleared). I had to remove a couple of fonts on my wife's system that Font Book marked as bad when I validated them before TurboTax could print a Tax Return again. This has happened with too many different printers to be a driver problem and Apple has to come out with a fix.

Good Luck,
