    I'm seeing this show up when I do a permissions repair in Snow Leopard 10.6.2
    Permissions differ on "usr/share/derby", should be drwxr-xr-x, they are lrwxr-xr-x
    Repaired "usr/share/derby"

    It shows up each time I do this. Anyone else seeing this?

    Couple of things to say about this post. One, You can NOT safely ignore EVERY message that Repair Permissions comes up with. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1448 Those are the ONLY ones you can safely ignore. Any others are issues. Also, Repairing Permissions is a routine maintenance task, meaning that even if you are not having problems, you want to repair permissions.

    To the OP, I have also noticed this message popping up in my Disk Utility. I found this Apple Discussion on the topic (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=10789456). It seems after a recent Java Update, Apple changed this file to a Symbolic Link, thus, not allowing Disk Utility to fix the issue. Please read further into the Discussion for more information.
