    whenever i repair permissions (when updating osX .etc) the same permission always gets repaired. there may be others sometimes but this one is always there.

    is this unusual?

    i'll add the specific file permission once i do a repair.

    ta. :)

    It would be nice if you stated which file always needs its permissions repaired. Afterall, there tens of thousands of files on each MacOS X computer. That said, there is a specific file whose permissions always gets changed during a permissions repair. IIRC, it has to do with ISO9600 CDs. At any rate, there is a short note in the Disk Utilities monitor window explaining why this file's permissions are what they are. It appears everytime this particular's file's permissions are repaired. All you have to do is read that note.

    As the above poster stated, it is most likely the


    permission that is repaired. This is a hard-coded permission repair, and was done due to a security concern, IIRC. Nothing to be concerned about.
