    Funny, my girlfriend just asked me no less the 2 minutes ago what this means. Its just updating caches that make the system boot faster ... just wait for it to finish.

    Yeah, it's completely normal. On Tiger this used to occur in the background after installing an update. That resulted in the first boot being slow and sometimes unresponsive. Seems like Leopard has a better implementation by refreshing the caches before the reboot.
