    So I've been running this install of OS X for about 20 months with minimal problems.

    In the last few weeks though I have had some issues with it slowing down and apps not responding. Every time a quick permissions repair fixes it. In the last 3 days I have had to repair permissions 4 times.

    Normally it is one or two items that get fixed, usually directly related to the program in question. This morning I had 10-15 items that got fixed, most related to the library.

    Are there any normal reasons permissions get out of whack? This morning I deleted a bunch of podcasts from iTunes, but my iTunes library is on an external drive, Not my internal drive, where all the problems were.

    We'll need some logs to really give you a useful answer.
