In function fixPermissions(). I am seeing this code snippet and comment.

     diskutil repairPermissions / | tee -a "$LOGFILE"
     wait
     # TODO: Fix this exit status. This is bogus, since it's actually the result of
     # the tee operation rather than the diskutil operation.
     loggit "Permissions have been repaired. -$?-"

To overcome this, you could either use "set -o pipefail" or ${PIPESTATUS[0]}
