    I've been getting this weird message popping up in the Console lately:

    Jul 2 20:32:01 Jims-Computer WindowServer[438]: CGXDisableUpdate: Updates disabled by connection 0x4c07 for over 1.000000 seconds

    Anybody know what it is? My system seems to be running OK, but the message does show up a few times a day in the log. I haven't been able to figure out what triggers it yet, though it always shows up right away after login. And yes, I have repaired permissions.

    The window server controls your displays and what happens in them.

    The CGXDisableUpdate is normal, it happens on routinely on my machine.

    I don't know what update this string refers to but in my logs it usually follows the sheduled launching of a helper application (in my case iCal) where it seems that the the helper cannot be launched because of a variety of reasons. My interpretation of this is that the window server was probably planning to do something in the display and instead receives a cease and decist order.
