Leopard, Proxies, PubSubAgent crash
I’ve just released HTTP::Proxy::GreaseMonkey. It’s an HTTP proxy that allows (some) GreaseMonkey scripts to be used in any browser - not just FireFox. I wrote it so I could use my GreaseMonkey search.cpan.org enhancer with Safari.
After installing the proxy and telling Safari (and everything else on the machine) to use it I started to experience
PubSubAgent crashes every twenty minutes or so. It turns out that
PubSubAgent is responsible for .mac synchronisation - and it doesn’t like proxies. You can read more about the problem here.
The solution suggested on that thread - to add .mac.com to the proxy bypass list - is heading in the right direction but isn’t quite correct. Instead you must add
*.mac.com to the proxy bypass.
