After upgrading to OS 10.7.4, upon restart a dialog log appears: "AppleIDAuthAgent wants to use the "login" keychange."  I enter password.


On subsequent retarts the dialog box appears and does one of two things.  It shows dialog box again and stays on screen until I input password or select cancel button OR the dialog box will flash on screen of about 5 seconds and closes itself.  I don't recall ever seeing this dialog box in previous upgrades.


Is there a bug in 10.7.4?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

If you're seeing it, then it's a bug. File a bug report with Apple.

We had the same problem here after the upgrade to 10.7.4.  Here's what resolved the issue:


  1. Logged-in as root user
  2. Applications->Utilities->Keychain Access->Preferences
  3. Reset Default Keychain
  4. Reboot


I actually ran into one problem with this, "Reset" failed with an "Could not obtain authorization for this opperation" error and left me w/o a login keychain (If you encounter this, please report this bug also); however, running "Keychain First Aid" fixed that.
