I just noticed a log entry related to ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist

Checking the ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist directory I found over 170 *lockfiles many from Aug 15 2011.

None from anytime recent.

Should something be cleaning them up?


I deleted all of them, was that a mistake?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Also have ibook
