    Amazing – thanks for forwarding on the info this has been driving me nuts for awhile now. I finally got the error message described above and a quick search let me here and viola adobe now works again. IIRC this was the same bug the plagued FireFox 3 when it first came out and prevented from opening for users who had their homes on AFP shares.
