Smart Update gets hung up after OS upgrade

First, let me apologize for asking two questions within minutes! (No hurry on the answers.)

A few weeks ago, I created my first bootable clone using SuperDuper. At that time, I was using Mac OS 10.4.2. Subsequent Smart Updates took about 10 minutes to perform.

Recently, I upgraded to OS 10.4.11. Now, when I run a Smart Update, the process stalls each time for a period of about 10 minutes while it appears that no files are examined or copied. The Smart Updates eventually are completed successfully after 20-25 minutes (40GB HD with about 5GB available), but I'm wondering if this stalling is indicative of some kind of problem.

(If it helps, after my last Smart Update, I looked at the log, and it showed many, many lines for the exact same time. Almost every line line contained in the log during the stall started "ignoring/private/var/temp/..., followed by a string of numbers.)

Is this normal?

Thanks,
-Bob

It means something's writing a lot of files to the temporary folder. Try restarting your Mac.

You're a damn genius, Dave! Thanks a lot.

I just ran a Smart Update after starting up my laptop this morning, and it ran without stalling. It took about the same length of time (about 11 minutes) as it did before I installed my new system software.

The log still showed a ton of "temp" files, but they didn't seem to delay things.

Thanks again, Dave.
-Bob

Glad to hear it's back to normal, Bob.
