    After installing the combo update on my 5,1 MacBook, my machine upon restart or shutdown, will merely close the menu bar and remove the desktop icons but the dock remains open. After a couple minutes, a message will pop up stating that which ever program was shut down last will not allow the restart or shutdown. Top however doesn't report the program as running. I repaired disk permissions and that didn't do anything to help the issue.

    Any thoughts?

    Yeah, I did. I did solve it though. I downloaded the update directly from Apple's site, re-installed the update then in the terminal:

    sudo reboot

    After that, it was fine.
