The problem is that the python plist parser available in Tiger did not  
handle non-printable characters, or dates that are far in the past/ 
future.  After Leopard came out I updated the parser to make use of  
Leopard's if it was available, but you will have to update your Latex  
bundle from the subversion repository to get that.
