    I don't know when it started, recently I guess, but I keep getting three new entries in my console every three seconds (!!!).

    It is always the same entry:
    mDNSResponder: queryrecord_result_callback: mDNS_Lock: Locking Failure! mDNS_busy 1 != mDNS_reentrancy
    (see picture).

    It's very worrying. I have been looking everywhere for help. I have installed HandsOff recently but I have also installed it on another Mountain Lion computer and the entry does not show.

    If I run this
    sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
    it obviously stops but then I can't use the Internet.

    Any idea highly appreciated!!

    The problem is related to HandsOff! I thought that the problem went away in 10.8.4, but it persists.
