iTunes receipts
Authored by: ms_t_rie on Feb 15, '06 03:35:19PM

I was reading up on this when the problem surfaced on my system, and if I'm not mistaken, Repairing Permissions only looks at the apps that are in the Receipts folder for comparison, what's in Receipts tells DU what the permissions are supposed to be. Remove the reference from Receipts and Disk Utility won't be comparing the app to anything.

In the case of iTunes, you could also just move it somewhere else, run DU and move it back also, (I had tried that once) and also get it to finish, simply because it fails to find iTunes when it checks Receipts :)
