    Well not really but I have more trouble with time machine completing a backup. This has gone on for many months now. Close to 100% of the time Time Machine will hang at some random point before it finishes it's run. Oh yes, I've been patient... let it sit there... wait... wait... waiting doesn't fix the problem. My only fix is to delete the plist file and try it again. That does trick... every time. Time Machine is great... when it works. I've been to the apple site and have the fixes to Time Machine problems bookmarked so I'm not the only one who has issues. Just wish I'd see a Time Machine fix in 10.6.x someday soon. Anyone else here having problems getting Time Machine to do it's job?

    It turned out to be the external disk I was using for backup.
