Don't worry about it. Everybody has that "mile".
After some various installations and file copy from/to external hard drives i ran the repair permissions on the bootup hard drive.
There was a listing about a mile long. Whoa, that does not look good to me.
So, i ran the persmissions repair again: another mile long listing: yikes.
Yep, ran another permissions repair and same thing.
How many times do you have to run permissions until it just show a few permissions that had to be corrected ?
Or is this a sign that the system is in trouble.
This was an external FW drive with Leopard run by iMac 3.06GHz.
