Mac min running Snow Leopard on external USB disc... Applejack got stuck for hours during permission repair. Earlier had found wrong permissions in Java components that Dis Utility later restored!
Thanks for the bug report:
1) Can you attach your AppleJack log to this ticket? it's located at /var/log/AppleJack.log. You may want to remove any information in it that you don't want available on the 'net.
2) Can you tell us more about your computer? You can run this command:
3) When you run permissions repair on your built-in drive, are you also having issues, or only on your external USB?
4) What version USB is the external drive, and do you usually run your system on it?
