Finder stuck after opening a password protected disk image in OS X

I have created a couple of disk images of different sizes using Disk Utility.  When I open them and enter the password, the dreaded spinning ball does its thing and the disk will not open until I do a force quit of finder.  After the force quit, the disk appears on my desktop and everything works.  This started happening when I had 10.2.6 and it is still happening in 10.2.8.  I even tried creating a new disk image but get the same result.  How do I fix this so I don't have to force quit finder all the time?

Sounds like another classic permissions error. Repair them. The usual steps should work. Permissions, FSCK, Norton, etc.
