Same old story that's apparently been going on since at least 2006 - iTunes randomly opening in System Tray. When observing on Console, it opens and you can see the message: "iTunes: ApplePushService: APSConnection being used without a delegate que. I then manually close iTunes. A message then appears: "iTunes: BUG in Libdispatch client: kevent [EVFILT_WRITE] delete: "No such file or directory" - 0x2 I have done the "Permissions exercise", as well as other suggestions made by fellow users, all to no avail. Within a short time, iTunes reopens and the cycle begins all over - it's like a dog chasing it's tail! Surely the Techies at Apple can figure out, in an eight year time span, how to tame iTunes? Why are they so silent??
