We've got 3 new-to-us 2008 xserves that we put into service last week.  Installed 10.6, updated up to 10.6.8 and took all of the software updates up until Safari 5.1.4.  Computers all work fine.  Then take the safari update -- afterwards, SoftwareUpdate crashes a bit after launch, gui or command line.  The error when you do it on the command line is "IFJS_PropertyListConvertToType() called with type=3".


Over on the osx snow leopard server discussion board, several other people are reporting that they have the problem but only with the 2008 xserve, the 2009 xserve is just fine.  (No reports yet about the 2006 xserve.)


I have reported the bug to apple, and they asked for a crash report, which I gave them.  It's bug #11048593  (not sure if those are publicly viewable...)
