Since I upgraded my MacBook Air 1.6 Ghz to Mac OS 10.5.6 at the beginning of the year 2009 (although around the same time I also purchased a Time Capsule -- don't know if that could have anything to do with the problem), Cyberduck became totally unusable (Cyberduck worked fine before that). Since then, when I launch Cyberduck, the Duck Icon bounces for a while on the dock, the menu above changes to the Cyberduck menu, but no browser window opens. On the Cyberduck menu, most things work ("Transfers", "Activity", "New Download" windows DO open), EXCEPT the most important browser window, which simply is non-existent!
I have tried:
File>New Browser --- > Nothing happens
Upgrading to latest version of Cyberduck (a couple of new versions have been released since my problem began)
Downgrading to previous versions ( I have tried from version 2.7 to version 3.2)
Trashing the preference files (e.g. .plist) for Cyberduck. I have even tried doing this every time I changed versions and between launchs
Repairing permissions on my macbook, cleaning caches, etc.
Upgrading my Mac to 10.5.7
Restarting my MacBook in Safe Mode and clean installing Cyberduck in that mode.
Whatever I've done, the problem persists!
Doing an Internet search, I found another user with the same problem, on MacUpdate. That person wrote:

FIZIK I had donated in the past but haven't used Cyberduck for a while. Gave 3.0 a try -- no browser window upon launch. Doesn't respond to New Browser either. In fact, does not draw any windows, e.g. in response to About Cyberduck. Downgraded to 2.8.4 -- same effect. And yes, I have trashed its Prefs file and its folder in App Support before each launch...
I really liked Cyberduck, used it for a few months and was about to donate, when this problem occurred. Now I've been unable to use it all year long.

There are other similar ones, but when I try to submit them, your system says it's spam, so I only included the first
