I seem to be asking lots of potentially dumb questions today, but...

What exactly is "prebinding?" My system.log has quite a few of these errors, and I've never been able to figure out what they mean. Now a fix is posted with the following warning:

"The downside is, of course, that no binaries launched from the shell will be prebound"

But not knowing what "prebinding" means, I'm not sure what to make of the warning. I really feel like I've not been paying enough attention after reading the hints today. I usually understand them just fine ;-)

Prebinding can speed application launching ... it basically lets the system associate required libraries with each particular app.
