    Has anyone here been affected by this? Looks like the M$FT fanbois are having a field day with this.

    I was bored, so I used an extra partition that I use as a boot disk to run DiskWarrior etc. that still had Leopard on it, and I did everything I could to try to reproduce this bug -- activating the Guest account, logging back and forth a couple of times between the main account and the guest account, upgrading to Snow Leopard, then logging back and forth several times with the guest account, but it never deleted any of my settings or any of the files I had in that (pretty much useless) home directory on that partition.

    Now I'm back on my main startup volume and everything is A OK. :dunno:
