I have a few problem accounts on a mac mini running Snow Leopard. When logging in with some accounts, it hangs forever. Sshing to the box shows that the user has a session, and the system isn't under any load.
I've deleted caches, and the program "little snitch" is not installed.
Since one of the users didn't have much in their account, I renamed their old account, and made them a new one. The only thing I copied from the old account are files on their desktop.
After one session in which all they use is two java programs and firefox, their account gets screwed up again, and they can't log in again.
I've run the same two java programs and firefox in my account without issue (as have all the other users).
Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a proper fix?
Updates: Checked and fixed disk permissions, there were issues in /System/Library/Java/ with .jar files that are executable when the system thinks they shouldn't be, but that's it.
Here's a full cycle of logs from bootup, till the user got impatient and forcefully restarted the box.
