1) You never posted what “po [$rdi password]” was supposed to be returning. (tee hee hee… I’m awful, ain’t I? ;-)

2) Have you filed a bug about the failure to warn about bad code signing?

Websites that advise folks do things like “just modify that apps info.plist file, it’s easy” scare me.

It would never have occurred to me to check secure.log; I’ll do that next time I see a keychain problem.

It doesn’t say anything about code signing. There are some other responses to the question that mention it, though.

Even more so if one could filter it by timestamp. Especially since the line between ‘dialog box’ and ‘log message’ is arbitrary, and will never suit every user.

However, in somes cases it’s not obvious *which* log to check. For example, secure.log is kind of obvious in retrospect, but there were no log messages in the regular “console.”

After all, even if the log doesn’t contain the answer, it often contains things that can be punched into Google.

I never thought of using instruments to profile other apps than my own. The gdb stuff is a bit beyond me, but the more I am exposed to it’s use, the more likely I am to give it a shot whenever I find myself in a suitable situation :)
