    Ever since I upgraded my 2007 Macbook pro from Tiger to Snow Leopard (10.6.2) Terminal starts up every time I restart. It says this:
    It appears that Terminal is trying to launch that particular iPhoto file every time I restart. I've tried trashing my Terminal Preferences file (~/Library/Preferences/ but the problem persists.

    The problem is probably in some startup script set somewhere. Where the offending item is, though, is going to take some digging. There are about 10 places to search... I don't remember offhand where they all are, though.

    One thing to look at is the Login Items (in System Prefs -> Accounts), and see if Terminal (or anything else unusual) appears in that list. Also we should know about what sort of "startup" files exist in your home, which Bash might be processing. This command will list those (among other items):

    ls -ld ~/.[^.]*
