The problem went away just as mysteriously as it appeared.
A 2nd or 3rd reboot, clean all targets, and build and go, and all seems right again.

No....not really. Caches can be both blessing and curse.
Just don't get yourself convinced this type of magic is reliable, since it smells smug, just like sharks smell fear and just when you think you can fall back on it for one last rescue, boom...it's gone for goodIntel iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.1), OLED Pano
Yay!! Da Man is back!!!
But at the risk of bringing up a touchy subject during your welcome home celebration, who gave you permission to just up and leave for two weeks??

Funny you should mention that, 'cause if things work out, we might need some bodies/help. Got to wait for another month to see how the proposals went...how do you feel about working in Europe on some interesting apps.

My wife got home just as I read your message, so I asked how it might work out if I was in Europe for awhile. I give her credit for a good faith effort to appear like she might miss me. Could be an idea whose time has come.

Personally, I've found that a large body of water does wonders for certain, uh...relationships. I'll keep you posted. l o l
sorry to hijack the threadIntel iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.1), OLED Pano
Since I don't know what caused the problem in the first place, I'm not so smug about it just going away.
Am I wrong to think that clear all targets in XCode and deleting the project out of the simulator is clearing out the cache, or is there another cache or two that needs to be cleared?
As for hijacking the thread, guess I could put in a plug that I am looking for a job. I've been a senior level product support engineer and project leader/manager (not the PMP type) for many years, a little rusty at programming since I don't do it every day anymore, hence my past few months diving into Objective C on the iPhone, however, I've years (20+) of real-time, network, and operating systems programming under my belt, as well as network, systems and product architecture experience. While I'm looking for other work, not explicitly as a programmer, I'm writing iPhone apps (with the help of this forum I'm actually pretty resourceful. You'd be surprised what Mac OS's I'm doing various parts of these project on.
Contact me, outside the forum, if you've got any projects that I could be of service on. I'm almost done the first run of my 2nd iPhone project, a word guessing game. The first phase as far as UI is complete, and the user can play the game. Phase 2 is to add the computer assist logic to aid the user in guessing the word by flagging letters as known to be in or out of the secret word. Phase 3 will be to allow players to play against one another, or against a group of real and computer players. That will take a bit longer and won't be expected till version 2.
P.S. I'm not against traveling or working on the other side of the pond, as I've worked in the US for a UK based company, and in southern England for a US based company in the past.
We now return you to the regularly scheduled forum, and if you happen to know what might have caused the corruption, please feel free to chime in.
The program was working. I went into IB to set the background images on many of the buttons in my MainView.xib file. Back and forth to photoshop on my other computer to render 3-d look images using bevel and emboss. Then after changing a couple of button images a couple of time to see how they looked in the simulator, I selected Build and Go in XCode, and everything went south.
I quit and restarted IB and XC several times, including doing the clean all targets and rebooting the system in between. No useful messages in the console log. Haven't looked at the system console log, but that would be my next place to look, in case XC or IB caused the problem.

This is still unsolved... some people suggest to kill the processes in Activity Monitor. However in my case they are unkillable.
I even used a shell and "ps -A" and then "kill -9" but the processes are still not killed!
In the shell you can also see that the processes are dependent on the Simulator, not XCode.
Any additional ideas are appreciated!
