I have been having an issue now for several months with OS X. It is a known issue, the PubSubAgent glitch that comes from RSS feeds in Mail and syncing bookmarks through MobileMe. In my case I have isolated the problem to bookmarks syncing. Every time I disable bookmark syncing, my machine runs perfectly. As soon as I turn syncing on, I get a message about every 20 or 30 minutes prompting me to put in my account password. In Leopard, I got this message:
PubSub Agent wants to use your confidential information stored in ‘idisk.mac.com mvest20’ in your keychain. Do you want to allow access to this item?"
I was hoping that Snow Leopard had cleaned this glitch up, unfortunately, no luck. Now the message I get is this:
Type an administrator's user name and password to allow OS X to make changes. Mac OS X wants to use the System keychain. Under the details tab, the computer tells me that the application that wants to use the keychain is PubSubAgent.
So, the question, does anyone know of a fix for this? For now I am leaving off my bookmark syncing, but I really like having my iPhone having full access to my computer's bookmarks and vice versa. If anyone has any suggestions or advice, I would be very appreciative.
