    I have this weird process that was running which took up 100% of one of my cores.... anyone have any idea what it is? The name again is "OakAuthTool" and I tried killing it with sudo and it didn't budge....

    Sure hope it's not some kind of funny virus... it's started up by root... not sure where the file is located either... wouldn't tell.

    I restarted my comp though and it was gone... so I'm waiting to see if it comes back...

    Any insight would be great... thanks

    I wanted to add a little bit more information... this process started after I did the following:

    Was working in TextMate and I hit <apple key+S> too many times in an attempt to save a file... and TextMate prompted me with a request to provide my root password... at which point I did and that process started.

    So I'm thinking it might be some authentication process started by TextMate... but would this be a bug? Doesn't seem normal...

    Yes, It is an sshfs issue

    I'm using ExpanDrive also and have experienced the same problem. Looking forward to a fix.
    Best,
