Repairing permissions - same files being repaired over & over

    Lately I've noticed that when I repair permissions, it's the same files that keep appearing the log of files being "repaired"... which leads me to believe they're not actually being repaired at all.

    It's at the point where I can repair permissions once, generating a log of repaired files, and then if I repair permissions again immediately afterwards (whether I've closed and reopened Disk Utility in the mean time or not), the same exact list of files appears as being repaired.

    Anyone know what's going on?

    Do you want the long, complicated answer? It's found here.

    Hopefully this will be resolved in 10.5.7. But in the meantime, it is harmless.

    I feel for you OP. It's kind of like this thread topic, gets posted over and over and over again.
