Subject: [Leica] Lightroom 3 Cross-Platform Catalog: Warning

Is it possible that this isn't just a cross-platform problem?
Has anyone had any problems importing a catalogue from one Mac to 
another or from PC to PC. The way I see it, there are the following 
permutations that could do with checking out:
Win 7 - Win 7
XP - Win 7
Mac - Mac
Mac - XP
Mac - Win 7

For the time being, I'll be staying with LR2.7 as I our Macbooks are 
running Leopard and our main machine runs XP
