    Default Automator workflows broken in 10.6, the fix is inside this thread!
    Automator action workflows are now called "Services". If you want your plug in's or work flows to work again, do this......

    Here's an example:

    If your Finder plug-in workflow doesn’t work,

    In SnowLeopard, services provide a powerful method of adding functionality to the Finder and other applications. Services supersede Finder plug-in workflows. If you use Finder plug-in workflows created on an earlier system, you must manually turn them into services.

    To create a service from a Finder plug-in workflow:

    Open the old Finder plug-in workflow.

    Choose File > New.

    Select the Services template and click Choose.

    Choose the type of data your service requires as input in the “Service receives selected” pop-up menu, and then choose an application from the “in” pop-up menu.

    If the service should be available in all applications, choose “any application.”

    If you want the service to behave exactly the way the previous Finder plug-in workflow did, choose “Files and folders” from the “Service receives selected” popup-menu, and choose "Finder" from the “in” pop-up menu.

    If you want selected text overwritten with text modified in the workflow, select the “Replaces selected text” checkbox.

    Click the Finder plug-in workflow window to bring it to the front.

    To copy all the actions in the workflow, choose Edit > Select All, and then choose Edit > Copy.

    Click the new service workflow window to bring it to the front.

    Choose Edit > Paste.
