comment My webcam just came on “out of the blue”
I have this exact same question for OS X. If anyone knows of an parallel question on SuperUser or AskDifferent, a link would be greatly appreciated— else I'll open a new question (sooner or later).

comment How to dump memory to a file in gdb (osx)? Need to rescue my work
sourceware.org/gdb/onlinedocs/gdb/Core-File-Generation.html seems to suggest that it isn't implemented on OS X.

(gdb) gcore Undefined command: "gcore". Try "help". (gdb) generate-core-file Undefined command: "generate-core-file". Try "help".

comment How do I investigate commands being run when changing directories?
I will of course try disabling my PS1 settings and see if that solves my specific issue. However, the general problem still stands.

comment How do I investigate commands being run when changing directories?
The git-status-in-PS1 thing was just a guess, because I know I have that set up. While I know there probably are other things altering my PS1 (on my system), is PS1 the only thing that gets evaluated when changing directories? Or are there other hooks I should investigate?

comment Can I run iOS apps on my Mac?
I'm unable to post a formal answer; regardless, iEmu is an up-and-coming project that aims to fill exactly your need.

comment Mountain Lion Finder Memory Issues
I really should've searched/posted on Ask Different in the first place. My apologies. Let's close this one.

comment Mountain Lion Finder Memory Issues
Although my original question was oriented towards introspecting into what it is that the Finder is using so much memory for (I've used Windows and Linux tools to do this), I'm no longer in need of a solution. Perhaps this question is too focused on what should be a larger stand-alone question, and should be closed.

Ran through what you mentioned, plus the other stuff in that Ask Different post, and it's now fixed. Your help has been much appreciated.

That's what I was thinking. ;-/ I'm currently trying out that and some other stuff in apple.stackexchange.com/questions/65486/…

Thanks for your help so far, but from what I can tell, it really does seem mds-related. Though I'm not sure how to verify this assumption, or what to do about it.

Tried removing that, quitting all of them and removed them from Login Items. No dice.

Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive. Just tried quitting all three and relaunching the Finder; no effect.

comment Moving the swapfiles to a dedicated partition in Snow Leopard
I'm not sure why I can't post an answer (101 rep, which — if I can remember my maths — is more than the 10 which the protected state requires), but I found an non-wait4path solution, thanks to what Applicorn's Xupport modified for me. I'll post a full answer once I figure out how to, but the short of it is to change the last program argument to just the new path (e.g. <string>/Volumes/swap/.vm/swapfile</string>), change the OnDemand key to <true/>, and add a StartOnMount key to the end with a value of <true/>. P.S. This solution works fine in Lion (for me, at least).

That link seems to be offline now as well. It's giving me a big 'ol 404.
