Get ( SystemIpAddress ) slow in FM 10 and Snow Leopard

Description of the issue

I've just upgraded to Snow Leopard and an audit log function we've been using has changed from taking less than a second to nearly a minute. It took a while to track it down, but it is a problem with the Get ( SystemIpAddress ) function. The custom function that forms the log output recursively goes through the field list and evaluates the IP Address for each field audited, which is why it took a minute. It still takes about 2 seconds to execute each call. I proved this by opening up the data viewer and evaluating the function from there. I compared this to FMA10 running on OSX 10.5 and it was instantaneous. I've resolved our problem by rewriting the custom function around the IP Address issue and removing auto calculated fields that used the get function, but I believe this is an issue that FMI should look into. Thank You. OS: Mac OSX 10.6.1Client: FileMaker Advanced 10.0v3Server: FileMaker Server Advanced 10.0v2
