Apple has just released update 10.7.4 for OS X  to fix a broken “reopen windows when logging back in” setting, which caused windows to always reopen after a restart, despite the user settings.

In addition, this update also addresses issues relating saving files to a server, to copying files to a “SMB server” and device compatibility with “certain British 3rd party keyboards.” System fixes aside, this update also includes Safari 5.1.6., which disables old versions of Flash for security reasons.

From Apple:

This update disables Adobe Flash Player if it is older than 10.1.102.64 by moving its files to a new directory. This update presents the option to install an updated version of Flash Player from the Adobe website.
