    Hey everyone
    Over the last couple days, I've been getting an allow/deny modal view popup from PubSubAgent, asking to use my credentials for an RSS feed(this started happening the day I played around with Times, so it's probably the cause). I hit always allow, but it keeps popping up every few minutes. Tried rebooting and the like, but it keeps happening. Any ideas?

    If you expand the details, you should be able to choose to trust the source of the certificate permanently.

    I do that every time, and it still keeps popping up. Any ideas?

    Solution for a Nagging PubSubAgent - No, sorry, posted too soon

    I had this problem for about 6 months - I had to change to manual syncing so that I only had to "allow" access 2-3 times per sync, rather than every half-hour. "Always Allow" just didn't seem to work. Very strange.

    Then I found a solution on some Unix-Mac-Hackerish site. It seems that the problem is a subtly corrupt keychain. Go to Username->Library->Keychains and open the keychain with its default app. Now on the "Keychain Access" pull-down menu choose "Keychain First Aid", and run "Repair" twice. Some say you need to do it twice - I just trusted them. Now I am cured. Hope that this can help other poor souls.

    Correction - seemed to work at first, but still getting nagged.
