is correct about contribute... probably we can boil it down if we can
see why it is going wrong... with my experience, i can say CT 4 is far
better than CT 3 or CT 3.11...
Here you go...
Go to your Mac... Delete all your site connections that you have made
(do it if you remember your connection details it later again with
/<User>/Application Support/Preferences/Contribute x Preferences?
Remove it from that location and paste it to your desktop !!
Try launching contribute now... I doubt this would be something related
to when contribute tries to connect to your site.. This way you will not
connect to your site when contribute is launched... hope we can narrow
it down as to whether it is product issue or site issue !!
