    Just noticed that when I right mouse click on an applications icon in the dock, doesn't matter if the app is running or not, I get one of these errors under my window.log:

    [66] kCGErrorIllegalArgument: CGXMoveWindowListToWorkspace: invalid window id: 4be

    Anyone know what causes this?

    No idea, I'm just chiming in to let you know this happens to me as well on both machines I have.

    Edit: this seems to be triggered by the contextual menu that pops up on either a right click or a normal click if you have folders in the dock.

    Are you having issues?

    On my Mac Pro, I had a weird Dock crashing issue last week (that's why I've been paying attention to the logs).

    Hi,

    Actually I'm not really having issues - my computer froze for a brief second earlier but it's fine now. I'm using Snow Leopard 10.6.3. I was trying to figure out what caused it but I can't think really. I've seen on numerous other forums people have similar problems but no one has come up with a solution or an answer to it. Probably one of those mystery log entries that sounds sinister but doesn't really mean anything. :)

    A stray log entry is not a "problem". Stay out of Console unless you already have problems.
