Howdy! I know it's totally experimental, but I wanted to report on my 
experience trying to use pgAdmin III on Mac OS X for my daily work for 
the last week or two.

Overall, it is usable. It's a pleasure to not have to RDC/VNC into 
Windows most of the time. There are some hiccups, though. Due to my 
inability to find a bug database, I'm going to post my (currently 
short) list of issues here. If there's a more appropriate forum, I'm 
sure someone will let me know :-)

- Sometimes I can't Paste - Cmd-V will delete selection but not insert 
clipboard contents. This isn't all the time, so it may be hard to 
reproduce. Next time it happens I'll try to document a test case.
- Cancelling a big query can hang the program. This happened for the 
first time today. It was a SELECT query that would've returned several 
thousand rows.
- Clicking on an object after database connection is broken will hang 
program. This happens when I get disconnected from my VPN. It's quite 
- The filter text box in View Filtered Data is not editable - the 
cursor can't be placed in it.
- I think I already mentioned this here, but for completeness' sake: 
the password box in the "connect to new server" dialog is off of the 
bottom of the window. I believe this is a bug in wxWidgets' handling of 
text on OS X.
- A fixed-width font option in the SQL editor would be great.
- Using modifier keys with arrow keys doesn't work as Mac users expect. 
If I switch to a Windows mindset, they work normally. E.g.  option-left 
should go back one word, but doesn't.

I'd love to tackle some of these bugs myself, but I don't have the 
requisite kung fu training.

Thanks for all of your great work!
