    I've just noticed an unusual entry in my Login Items list in the Accounts Pref Pane

    In the middle of the list of items there's one that listed in the Item column as '(null)', with 'Unknown' in the Kind column (without the quote marks). I'm not sure what it is, or how to find out what it is. I could delete it and see what happens, but I don't want to screw anything up through ignorance. Could it be a reference to start up an application that I've since deleted, or does anyone have any idea what it could be?

    TIA

    You can add almost anything to your Login Items but none of them are essential. A default OSX install only has iTunesHelper and iCalAlarmSchedular.

    Agreed, so I've deleted it. So far so good!
