Ok upgrading to 10.5.2 tomorrow, so will see if these go away then  
(perhaps apple devs fault?)

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only thinking this is very weird. I thought  
I was going nuts.

No, they _do_ start, it's just if you watch /var/log/syslog, they  
start with all the exec() warnings and crash sporadically with memory  
errors (undecipherable). GDB then reports 1081 in s_inter.c or  
thereabouts to be the problem.

Well maybe it'll all go away with 10.5.2; otherwise, I'm stumped.  
Leopard is one buggy cat.
