Recover from a constantly restarting Finder loop
Authored by: zelig on Feb 15, '07 01:39:40PM

Awesome -- this just saved me hours of rebuilding that wouldn't have worked anyway if the user account was re-imported. The culprit was a file on the desktop named ???.textClipping . I suspect this appeared due to a failed/incomplete download, as it wasn't user-created. Since deleting it fixed the finder loop, it may be possible to re-create the problem (if one were so inclined) by creating such a file and rebooting or logging out.
