I can only agree with your points on Apple. They should spend more  
time and resources on the open-source communities as their whole new  
system is built on it...

But anyway, I would like you to see if you get the same problems  
running an hardware VPN connection. If not, then there is probably  
something fishy with the key negotations with the tunnel and it might  
be that finder is more sensitive to re negotioations of IPSec keys  
than other protos.

Just my thoughts,I havn't had any problems with finder locking up  
over a hardware VPN tunnel so.
Let me know how it goes.
