    On an Intel MBP, with clean install of Leopard:

    In System Profiler -> Applications

    There's this application called DesktopDB ("/System/Library/CoreServices/SKPlugins/DesktopDB.service")
    that uses a Classic architecture (as opposed to Intel, PowerPC or Universal).

    Why would this rather old file be here under Leopard?
    For that matter, why is there a Classic app which shouldn't be able to run under an Intel MBP anyway?

    Anyone else have this thing there?

    Yes, I did a normal upgrade install and noticed that its there too. It definitely wasn't there before (I removed all non Universal/Intel apps from my MacBook). The only Classic app I ever had was an HP hidden app I deleted.
