It's looking like the former. I'm getting the same behaviour on my wife's machine too. I'm going to run over to the Apple store today just to verify that the FireWire port is good, then it's back to Costco with this drive when/if it is.

I don't completely understand what they mean by "Raise". I have my conversations grouped into a single window, and if I minimize that window, it is un-minimized when a new message comes in. Again, that's nice if I'm sitting in front of my machine when it comes in, but not really useful if I wasn't there. If the window is not minimized, it does not come to the front either. So if I want to count on "un-minimized chat window" as my notification that something new is here, I have to remember to minimize every time after I read a message.
