(or, in other words, if I don't post anything for a couple of days, then 10.5.2 is borked. If I do, not so much...)

Have you played with the Stacks, menu bar (and menu) transparency and Time Machine menu options yet?

I've downoaded and installed it.
I've set the menu bar to less transparent and removed Time Machine from the Dock. I've also set the Applications and Utilities (/Applications/Utilities) folders to display as folders. Mail has been updated to version 3.2.
One point to note for those with an MBP who have turned of automatic adjustment of the brightness is that this update turns them back on again.
One last point is that those with Leopard also need to download and install Leopard graphics Update 1.0 after installing 10.5.2.

They have not fixed the scrolling problem though, hit return in the event balloons, and the scroll bars return to the top.

I've not found the translucent menu to be a problem, so won't bother changing it, but it's nice to access Time Machine preferences with a single click on the icon in the dock now.

I like the new stacks view as well, but wish Apple would change the boring blue Folder Icon, its flat and hard to find.
Graphic update looks good too, but wish you could have more different colours than just Blue and Grey?

Love the new Stack view options, and have turned off the menubar transparency.

You're better off downloading the Combo Update and use that, as Sean has suggested. I only use Combo Updates when applying an update to any version of Mac OS X. The major advantages of the Combo Update are as Sean stated plus the fact that if you need to reinstall Leopard again, you only need to install one update (and maybe a couple of Security Updates at most).

The animation of the icon when backing up is great (the arrow, hour and minute hands rotate anti-clockwise plus the hour hand only moves in one hour increments after the minute hand has rotated through 60 minutes).
The second item is that, following the installation of the Combo and Grpahics Updates, the size of the backup was 1.6GB.
