I'm no unix geek, but if the kernel version is enough, that can be
found by parsing the output of "uname -a" or "hostinfo". I'm sure
there are better ways of doing this, but I just wanted to add my 5
cents to this discussion (not notally selfless, though: I am eagerly
waiting for this issue to be solved to move to snow leopard ;-) - SB

The workaround has been committed to trunk only, but since I got
build a binary for testing nothing is happening for branch. Since the
fix leads to a slow down when autosaving (LyX is unresponsive during
this time) I made another patch to speedup saving. This can go to
when/if there is significant testing.
Note that the workaround would affect to 10.5 and 10.6 equally,
do not know how to query OS version at run time.
