    Anyone ever get these? The system doesn't tell me why it's asking for my password, and everything works properly even when I hit Cancel, so I'm going to continue hitting Cancel for now.

    It's pretty damned bad form to ask the user for authentication without telling the user WHAT you're authenticating for. It would be trivial for a web page to pop up one of these and steal a user's iCloud password (though no browser was running so that isn't the case here)

    WTF, Apple?

    Are you logged in at the System Preferences > iCloud pref pane?

    Yep, I am. I usually get these dialogs after a reboot. I have to hit cancel twice.
