At this point you probably think the errors are SyncPX's fault.
And you would be right.
I started by taking the fault up with SyncPX's developer, Qdea. One other user had noted a fault similar to (2). Qdea maintain that there's nothing wrong with their code, and blame Apple's disc drivers.
What steps can I take to pin this down further? All advice and comments will be gratefully received..
Dump Qdea for someone who knows how to write Mac software.
2. Qdea displays the following review:
MacFixit had a good reputation, if you are old enough to remember when it used to exist.
3. Qdea provides download links to SynchronizeX and version in French, German, and Japanese. Apparently they don't know that Mac software can be localized into a single executable.
I'm sure there are any number of similar utilities available, all of them cheaper than SynchronizeX's $99.99 price.

Thanks for your robust common sense reply!
You are close to the mark when you say "if you are old enough to remember when [MacFixit] used to exist." As a 6 year old my Dad took me to the National Physical Laboratory in London (where he worked) to see Alan Turing's computer, the ACE, the direct successor of the world's first programmable electronic digital computer ... So MacFixit is recent history to me.
I still think there might be something odd about the 10.8.2 release, but without any other reports my case gets weaker by the day. I will have to look elsewhere as you say, and stop wasting time on this issue.
