The things that make you go "hmm..."

Just an FYI, command+shift+4, space bar, select window to screenshot. Makes much sexier screenshots. ;)

What issue with Time Machine Backups?

Good grief- Would it really pain Apple that much to tell us what issue they think they have fixed? Faced with the need to upgrade drives for more storage capacity, I was having a really bad time installing onto new mirrored drives from a TM backup and figured it was because Lion prefers to create its own invisible recovery partition. The restore process took hours at a time and I would like to know whether it's worth blowing another weekend putting the mirror setup back in place. The mirroring worked beautifully before the attempted storage upgrade. Sheesh.

I guess we won't be seeing 10.7.4 or anything like that now that Mountain Lion has been unleashed.

Why would you say that? Isn't it possible that this was simply a crucial fix that couldn't wait for 10.7.4?

I don't use TimeMachine, but this is good for the people who use it. It's nice to see that they are on top of issues.:apple:

You should try using Time Machine. it's the best thing ever invented besides ice-cream. :D

Well, seriously, it has saved my butt many times.
I have never seen something like that before, when I was a Windows user.

an 25 megs disk image for a 500 kbyte file? And the package only contains TimeMachineUpdatePayload with 1 byte (0x5F). Say what?

Agreed. Something seems amiss with this update. :eek:

I just don't know what to make of it.

Well, the package doesn't really contain files to install. Everything happens in the postinstall script: "./Tools/injectfse ./Tools/DeferredInstallFixup.file_list"

This seems to generate fake fsevents for the files listed in DeferredInstallFixup.file_list. I didn't look closer at that but I guess it's done to guarantee current versions of those files get pushed on the TimeMachine backup.
