Repair Permissions isn't repairing permissions

    Using OS X 10.5.6

    When running Repair Permissions in Disk Utility, it reports that there are errors and that it's fixed them but if I run it again, the same errors keep appearing.

    I've noticed that the current permissions on the errors are lrw-rw-rw- which I assume means that they are symbolic links and not the actual files which Disk Utility is expecting. Any idea what's going on?

    This was asked not too long ago. Those are symlinks. Don't worry about them.

    Why have they only just appeared though? What would cause these symlinks to be created?

    Recent updates to the iLife suite. Apple will probably release an update to clear this up, if not sooner, then later.

    It's a nonissue.
