Hi folks.


I have researched this, so don't think I'm posting this without doing my homework. I just haven't found the answer.


I've verified and repaired permissions using both my HD startup disk and a USB startup disk. Both times, a handful of permissions are listed as wrong. Both times I've selected repair and one by one they say they are repaired. I clear the history and verify permissions again. They all come up again.


Now...I understand that the "wrong" permissions might not be anything technically wrong. Here's my issue: Why is the utility telling me they repaired each one when in fact it hasn't?


Again, this isn't an issue of how "bad" these incorrect permissions are; it's an issue of Apple telling me their utility changed something when it clearly hasn't.


Any comments or corrections in my understanding of this process are appreciated.
