    Sounds whack... Backup and reinstall? lol

    I hate to be the one to say that, but when things get that bad, that's usually when I reinstall. It has never happened to me in OSX, though.

    What were you doing or what did you do before this suddenly started happening?

    NOT erase.

    First things first.
    Restart the machine
    Open the Applications: Utilities: Disk Utility and do a Repair Permissions on your drive.

    Then test. Does it still happen?
