qsb app stopped responding after looking for a key word search for a word .docx file, then the finder also stopped responding (CPU 225%). Forced quit & then worked OK with a contact name in Address Book, but then stopped again with another general key word search, so I'm not bothering with it until there's an update.

QSB doesn't launch the first time using the assigned hotkey even if you assign it as a startup item.

QSB freezes intermittently as you type in keywords. when that happens it slowly takes over OS resources and slows the whole system down. killing the qsb process in the Activity Monitor doesn't seem to alleviate the problem.

Disable Spotlight as a searchable item under Lion. Prevents the problem with all memory being consumed.
