Oddly, my OSX system preferences went weird yesterday (see image on the right).
Each system preference (well, most of the Apple-provided ones, anyway) shows as a "Preferences switch" icon, with the icons for the individual panes in the lower-left. Of course, this used to show with the small left-hand icon bits as the whole image for each preference pane.
Has anybody ever seen this before? Is it indicative of any system weirdness other than the odd appearance of the sysprefs window? Is there a way to return it to the original state (short of an OS reinstall?)
BTW, I'm using Tiger (OS X 10.4.5 PPC) on a G4 Powerbook.
