Hi Travis,

I'm the TORQUE developer that handles a lot of the OS X specific stuff
I have an Developers seed of OS X 10.5 from WWDC this summer installed onto
a firewire drive,  I'll see if I can find out
 anything from running it on that.  Thats the only Leopard install I have
available to me for testing right now.

I do know we have a user running torque on a mixed 10.4 and 10.5 environment
