What is the exact wording of the error message?

"There was an error storing your authorization information on this computer.
The required file was not found or has a permissions error. Correct this permissions error and try again, or deauthorize this computer if the permissions cannot be changed."
I tried deauthorizing (though I've never successfully authorized) and get the same message. I've looked around and it seems some people get similar problems if /User/Shared directory is missing. I've checked the existence of this folder, and the permissions. Just to be sure, I did a chmod 1777 on the dir, but nothing in the info changed. Seems maybe it actually is a file missing, but no clues which one.

Checked the hidden files in that folder, and there is only an empty file called: .localized

Have you tried repairing permissions with Disk Utility?

No, as the permissions seem fine everywhere else, I haven't check that. Was thinking it is an iTunes problem. I'll read up on it and give it a go...

Thanks for the suggestion, but the 'repair permissions' didn't help. Now when I connect the phone, I get a new message which is just lovely:
If you do not authorize this computer, 14 apps, including “Clear”, and their data will be deleted from this iPhone.
iTunes is the worst piece of garbage software I've ever had to use. How is it the people of the world have swallowed this nonsense for so long? Give me a Galaxy S over this nonsense ANY day.
